BookFilter: Seeking recommendations for book-club-type novels or short story collections about nature and the outdoors.

For a booklist I'm putting together, I'm looking for fiction books with good writing about the environment, wilderness, nature, and the outdoors.
I don't need any nonfiction - we've covered that - and I want to stay away from eco-warrier literature, The Monkey Wrench Gang, et al. The kinds of books I'm looking for would contain lots of evocative writing about nature and landcape, but personal themes that would appeal to fairly conventional book club groups.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
