Haskell’s “The Forest Unseen” wins National Outdoor Book Award

Close

Biology Professor David Haskell has won the National Outdoor Book Awards' National History Literature award for 2012 for The Forest Unseen. The National Outdoor Book Awards (NOBA) is the outdoor world's largest and most prestigious book award program.

The purpose of the awards is to recognize and encourage outstanding writing and publishing. Awards are given in 10 categories, including Natural History Literature.

About The Forest Unseen, NOBA said: “An engaging and poetic writer, Haskell takes us on a journey through the seasons, documenting the changes in an old growth forest and describing the many ecological processes occurring there. Through Haskell's words, the forest comes alive and seeps gently and unobtrusively into our conscience. Haskell has done it masterfully — writing with a quiet humility and a deceptive simplicity that mirrors the life in his small patch of the natural world.”
