RESURRECTION OF THE WILD
Deborah Fleming, author of Resurrection of the Wild: Meditiations on Ohio's Natural Landscape will be at the CH-UH Public Library, Coventry branch on Wednesday, April 3rd at 7 p.m.
Yosemite National Park, Louisiana's bayou, the rocky coasts of New England, the desert Southwest--America's more dramatic locations are frequently celebrated for their natural beauty, but far less has been written about Ohio's unique and beautiful environment. Author Deborah Fleming, who has lived in rural Ohio and cared for its land for decades, shares fourteen interrelated essays, blending her own experiences with both scientific and literary research. Resurrection of the Wild discusses both natural and human histories as it focuses on the Allegheny Plateau and hill country in Ohio's eastern counties.
