June 25, 2006

June 24, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - A list of "favorite books about wild places of notable Americans" includes Barbara Kingsolver's recommendation of Ordinary Wolves by Seth Kantor. "Once in a great while a novel comes along that can shiver right down your bones and show you the world was always larger than you knew," says Kingsolver, herself the author of bestsellers including The Poisonwood Bible, and a 1977 graduate of DePauw University.

The list was complied by the Campaign for America's Wilderness and also includes suggestions from the DePauw Logo.jpgEagles' Don Henley; Dennis Hayes, president of the Bullittt Foundation and coordinator of the first Earth Day; and former Colorado Congresswoman Patricia Schroeder, among others.
