The Tangled Bank

Naturalist Robert M. Pyle first wrote for Orion’s inaugural issue, in 1982, and contributed regularly to the magazine and its sister publication, Orion Afield, throughout the 1990s. We’re happy to pass along the news that his “The Tangled Bank” columns, which ran in fifty-two issues from 1997 to 2008, have now been collected in a book, forthcoming from Oregon State University Press this October.

Later this month, to celebrate the publication of The Tangled Bank: Writings from Orion, Robert and Orion editor Jennifer Sahn will host two gatherings in Oregon. Join us!

Old World Deli, in Corvallis, on September 27, at 7 p.m.

The Audubon Society of Portland, on September 30, at 7:30 p.m.

Read some of Robert Pyle’s articles for Orion here, and pre-order The Tangled Bank from OSU Press here.
