Rural Hours (formerly Wood River Books) specializes in ecology, natural history, nature and science writing, the environment, ecopoetics, contemporary essay, and literary journalism, with a special passion for association copies and notable inscriptions. Our name is an homage to Susan Fenimore Cooper's book *Rural Hours* (1850), considered the first work of environmental nonfiction by an American woman. Visit us at ruralhours.com
Important shipping notice: Due to the fact that we will largely be away from our office and book stock in 2024, shipping on all orders except our "New Arrivals" (see our website for those books) will occur only the first week of every month. Our expected delivery range has been changed accordingly to 5-30 days. Please be advised we will be unable to fill rush orders unless you order during that first week of any month. New arrivals will ship when ordered as we do have those on hand.
