Book Description:
John Hay has been acclaimed as one of the most significant contemporary nature writers and environmentalists. In Mind the Gap, an autobiographic memoir and a passionate commentary on our place in the natural world, he retraces the paths that led to his career and explores the literary and environmental influences that shaped his interest in nature.

Born into a respected old New York family, Hay grew up in upper class Manhattan and rural New Hampshire, between the rigid proprieties of society and the delicious freedoms he discovered during his outdoor adventures. Travel, education, and his own sensitivity and curiosity helped to open the world to him. Shortly after World War II, he moved to a desolate, sandy lot on Cape Cod. Much of the book deals with his life in a small rural community on the Cape, addressing such subjects as the annual herring spawn, resident and migratory birds, local wildlife, his human neighbors, and the complex rhythms of life in this region of plunging winds and vast seas. Hay s vivid, closely observed descriptions of his surroundings support his insightful comments on nature and our intricate relationship to it. He warns us that 'in setting ourselves apart from the rest of living creatures, we fall victim to our own ice bound conceit. It is only in sharing that we know anything at all.' Hay shares his knowledge generously, and as readers we are thereby vastly enriched.
