I know I have it or have read it...it's gotta be around here somewhere. Keep watching for the post.
Meanwhile did "U" know that:
The Library of Congress's General Collection and Rare Book Division include many volumes of nature essays, a literary genre which flourished in the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and contributed much to the cultural climate from which the American
conservation movement developed. After consulting works included in the Conservation Collection, readers who have direct access to the Library, or to other major research libraries, might wish to look at titles such as those on the list below.
