Stalking the Wild Dragonfly
Stories of Experiences in Nature
by Nancy Rivest Green


See Reviews
Animal stories have wide appeal, and most people have a few tales of their own to tell. Here Nancy shares a unique perspective drawn from a lifetime of living in national parks with her ranger husband, in addition to her travels to wilderness areas all over the planet. Come along on these intimate discoveries and reflections immersed in their landscapes. Nancy Rivest Green describes her personal encounters with wildlife in nature, and presents scientific research on each creature for greater understanding. Wilderness is also a character in these stories of top-tier species-some of which are sliding toward the brink of extinction.

This book offers the reader a delightful collection of first-hand wildlife encounters. Nancy Rivest Green has lived in the lap of wilderness for years and has traveled to fascinating places where wildlife was the main attraction. Add wonderful descriptive writing to such settings and experiences and suddenly you find yourself right in the middle of hunorous, and sometimes frightening, encounters with a diverse array of creatures. Each story of a personal encounter is followed by facts about that particular animal, which makes the book both fun and educational. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience; and I now have a strong urge to book a trip to some exotic place where animals abound. Treat yourself to a good read.
-- Bonny R. Carney, Ph.D., author of Living Large in the Land of the Incas and Honking Your Way Toward Enlightenment.
