Lyndsie Bourgon (author), represented by Daisy Parente

Lyndsie Bourgon writes about the environment and its entanglement with history, culture, and identity. Her features have been published in The Atlantic, Smithsonian, the Guardian, the Oxford American, Aeon, The Walrus, Hazlitt, and elsewhere. In 2018, she travelled to Peru with National Geographic to document indigenous experiences of timber theft. Her first book, Tree Thieves is published by Hodder. It uses timber poaching to explore questions of inequality, conservation history, and how the natural world defines who we are. It was longlisted for the Pen America KG/Non-Fiction Award, shortlisted for the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize and NELLIE BLY Book Awards for Journalistic Non-Fiction
