Salt Lake City, UT – Nature writer David Gessner has a problem with, well, nature writing. He says that impotence and sanctimony and false romanticism pervade the genre. Gessner is awed by the loud and wild disorder of nature - and he wants to bring a sense of realism back into the way we see the world around us. Tuesday on RadioWest, David Gessner joins Doug to talk about his work and his recent essay - My Green Manifesto.
