Travels I made in the pages (not counting alien worlds in the Animorphs) : Belize, Madagascar, the Congo, Botswana, Zambia, Mauritius, Tibet, England, Liberia and Tanzania.
Favorite books: Bringing Nature Home– very inspirational for a gardener like me. Eating Animals– this one made me a lot more conscious of food choices, and prompted my husband to buy our meat from a local farm (an hour drive). We eat less of it now, too. Animal Wise was another really good one- lots of specific studies on thinking processes. The Last Wild Wolves was just beautiful, and informative. Jaguar is another very good one- exactly the kind of writing I like about field studies, natural history and foreign places. In fiction, I really liked White Dog Fell From the Sky– subtle yet intense is a good word. There\’s convincing talking animals in a prehistoric setting and very good characterization in Darkwing. Another favorite book for me was Indian Saddle-Up– an older, dated novel but just a very well-told engaging story. And finally, People of the Sky is a sci-fi novel I have simply not been able to get out of my head. It was just fascinating.
