10 best books of April: the Monitor's picks

From Tokyo to Liberia to the northern edge of Paris, these 10 new April 2015 book releases cover very diverse territory. What they have in common is that all were placed on this month's "must-read" list by the Monitor's book critics.

1. "All the Wild that Remains," by David Gessner

Wallace Stegner and Edward Abbey, two of America’s finest writers, were also staunch environmentalists and devoted advocates of the American West. In this engaging book, nature writer David Gessner follows in the tracks of both men, providing strong portraits of them as writers and as human beings (with sharply opposing characters and lifestyles) even as he pays moving tribute to the land they so deeply loved. You can read the Monitor's full review of "All the Wild that Remains" here.
