Nature

£4.99

Ralph Waldo Emerson originally published this anonymously, and at the time it was the first modern essay to sing the praises of being in nature as an all-encompassing beneficial experience. It seems so obvious now, with all the staged Instagram photos of people being 'at one with nature', but here's where it all started for white folk. Of course the native Americans were way ahead of the game, but it took a fellow caucasian to highlight the importance of the natural world we're part of for the rest of America to sit up and take note.
