Loren Eiseley (1907 – 1977) was an American anthropologist, educator, philosopher, and natural science writer. Among his bestselling books were The Immense Journey (1957), Darwin's Century (1958), The Unexpected Universe (1969), and The Night Country (1971). Some thought of him as "the modern Thoreau."--Wiki.
