We Recommend: The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel
Stranger in the Woods
Christopher Knight lived in a tent encampment in the Maine Woods for 27 years, never being seen or speaking to another human. He lived unlike anything you can imagine--breaking into homes for food, batteries, propane, books, even mattresses--waking up in the middle of the night so as not to freeze to death in the heart of the winter.
We Recommend: Endling #1: The Last by Katherine Applegate
Endling: The Last
By Katherine Applegate
Middle Grade Fiction
Endling#1: The Last will have you rooting for Byx, Tobble, and Khara as the pages melt away. Byx is the youngest of a litter of dairnes: a highly-intelligent and almost extinct dog-like species that can talk, walk upright, glide through the air like a flying squirrel , and recognize a lie.
The best books always make you want to know more. American Wolf by Nate Blakeslee offers insight into the often diverging perspectives of biologists, environmentalists, ranchers, hunters, and politicians surrounding the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone. But the genius of this book starts with the narrative: this is a page-turner! The choice to tell this story as a kind of biography of the rise and reign of one wolf, an alpha-female known as O-Six, described as "the most famous wolf in the world" and a "once in a generation hunter" make this story come alive.
