That nature is good for you seems like a given: who doesn't love walking in the woods or watching the waves pummel the beach? Williams found that she missed the mountains of Colorado when she moved to Washington D.C., realized that it also affected her mood, and set out to find out why. She does a fantastic job combining the science behind why we love nature and how our brains and bodies respond to it and the ways different societies and countries approach it.
