Publishers Weekly's top nonfiction books of 2012

One of Publishers Weekly's top nonfiction books of 2012:
On Extinction: How We Became Estranged from Nature
Melanie Challenger (Counterpoint)

Analyzing our "estrangement from nature" in the 20th century, Challenger's moving and lyrical first nonfiction book meditates on big picture questions as she travels from a writer's solitary cabin on England's Ding Dong Moor to Antarctica with the British Antarctic Survey, back to the North Yorkshire town of Whitby and on to the tundra of the Arctic.
Read about the other books on the list.
