November Book Reveal

Aack! I’m late with the reveal! I’ve been super sick with this hideous cold and have been working late this week, so I had no time to get this up and out to you.

So…without further ado…drum roll, please…

The November book club selection is…

I’ve just begun reading it, and I must say, I am impressed by Owens’s writing style. I’m totally intrigued, also, by the author herself.

Here’s the bio I found on her website:

“Delia Owens lived in some of the most remote areas of Africa for twenty three years while she conducted scientific research on lions, elephants and others. Based on these expeditions and adventures, she co-authored three internationally bestselling nonfiction books about her life as a wildlife scientist.

She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior from the University of California in Davis. She has won the John Burroughs Award for Nature Writing and has been published in NatureJournal of MammalogyThe African Journal of Ecology, and International Wildlife, among many others. She currently lives in Idaho.”

Head to her website to read a quick synopsis, read an excerpt, and purchase the book from various sources.

This one is definitely made for a blanket, a cold November day, and an aromatic cup of tea. Her intimate knowledge of nature and our connection to it (and each other) is evident in her writing. I’ve never been to North Carolina, and I know little of the region, but her descriptions of the land and the wildlife make it almost tangibly real for me. I highly recommend it so far.

I’ll be back Thursday with a few deeper insights, some favorite passages/quotes, and questions to spur thought or conversation.

So, as always…Happy Reading!
