Return to Wild America

The featured book at Thursday’s gathering of Leafing Through the Pages, the Sterling Morton Library’s book discussion group, was Scott Weidensaul’s Return to wild America : a yearlong search for the continent's natural soul. The conversation about Weidensaul’s adventure was fascinating and presented another perspective on the original journey of Peterson and Fisher recounted in Wild America : the record of a 30,000 mile journey around the continent by a distinguished naturalist and his British colleague.
In addition to our discussion, we gathered a list of potential books to read in 2009. I’ve added this draft to the official Leafing Through the Pages wiki which can be found at: This wiki also includes our reading history detailing what we’ve read since the founding of the discussion group on March 13, 2003. Whew! Lots of great books, stories, poems and conversations!

Enjoy the list and join us at an upcoming discussion!
