It’s a lovely, brave, inspiring book…. Sometimes I think the highest praise you can give a book is to say that it helped. This book does that. –Barry Lopez
After finishing WildLives, I was approached by an audiobook publisher interested in acquiring the audio rights to my memoir. I said I’d be happy to sell them the rights if I could read it myself. They agreed, and I began reading… and re-reading… and reading again. That project took nearly a year, and it allowed me to experience my own book–my own story–at deeper and more intimate levels than simply writing it had.
