‘The Wild Excellence’ Author Talk in Cody

leslie weeAuthor Leslie Patton presents her biography, The Wild Excellence: Notes from Untamed America, 1:30 p.m. Sunday, March 29 in Grizzly Hall, Cody Library.

“The story is personal, but also generational, with a message about the American wild that begs for a caring ear on the part of city dwellers like us who may never see the grand corridors traveled by bears and wolves, but who will suffer an enormous loss if those environments are diminished or destroyed,” said Susan Pottish from Ashland, Oregon.

The Wild Excellence will be for sale, and a book signing will follow the program. Visit her website, The Human Footprint.
