Born, raised, and educated in Lincoln, Nebraska, Loren Eiseley (1907-77) was a highly respected writer and poet best known for explaining complex scientific concepts in poems easily read and understood by the general public. Much of his work covered anthropology, ecology, and human evolution, topics in which Eiseley himself was extensively educated. Loren Eiseley collects essays and remembrances of his work by friends and academics. Throughout this volume, Eiseley is praised as a brilliant thinker, accomplished writer, and esteemed man of science who drew inspiration from his midwestern upbringing and worked to bring science into the mainstream at a time when its understanding was restricted largely to those working directly in the field. Decades after his departure from the world he sought to understand, Eiseley is lauded for beautifully joining the worlds of science and literature.
