Filled mostly with outdoor photography, Rue Mapp’s book Nature Swagger celebrates Black voices in the outdoors. Rue Mapp’s book does a brilliant job of explaining why Black people need to reconnect with the great outdoors. Rue Mapp traces her personal history of connecting with the outdoors and weaves in different profiles of Outdoor Afro community members. Rue provides resources for people who want to get involved with conservation and outdoor activities.

Thank you to NetGalley for the free ARC!

This is a great collection of essays and photographs of Black folks enjoying nature in all different ways. I enjoyed the stories and the photos, especially the ones of the authors growing up and the many ways they experienced the outdoors. There are all different kinds of experiences, each from a different person with a different viewpoint. A great book.

I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for review.
