"Calling Robert Reid an outdoor writer is like calling Thoreau a writer about pond camping." -Robert Roper, author of Nabokov in America

The nineteen pieces in Because It Is So Beautiful include essays from Reid's previous books Arctic Circle, Mountains of the Great Blue Dream, and America, New Mexico; three essays that appear here in print for the first time; as well as revised and expanded versions of essays that appeared in Touchstone, The Progressive, and elsewhere.
