Edwin Way Teale (2 juin 1899 – 18 octobre 1980) est un naturaliste, photographe et écrivain américain qui a obtenu le prix Pulitzer. Le travail de Teale repose sur une enquête précise et documentée des conditions environnementales de l'Amérique du Nord des années 1930 à 1980. Il est surtout connu pour sa série de quatre ouvrages documentés, The American Seasons, qui retrace son voyage en voiture, sur près de 75 000 miles (soit 121 000 km) à travers l'Amérique du Nord, en suivant les changements saisonniers.
