With David Guterson
Part of the Nature of Writing Series, in partnership with North Cascades Institute
Join Robert Michael Pyle and David Guterson for a reading and discussion celebrating the 30th Anniversary edition of Pyle’s award-winning Natural History classic, Wintergreen. In the Willapa Hills of southwest Washington, both the human and the forest communities are threatened with extinction. Virtually every acre of the hills has been logged, often repeatedly, in the past hundred years, endangering both the land and the people, leaving dying towns as well as a devastated ecosystem. Weaving vivid portraits of the place and its inhabitants - animal, plant, and human - with the story of his own love affair with the hills, Robert Michael Pyle’s book is so even-handed in its passion that it has been celebrated by those who make their living with a chain saw as well as by environmentalists.
Robert Michael Pyle is the author of eighteen books, including Chasing Monarchs, The Thunder Tree: Lessons from an Urban Wildland, Sky Time in Gray’s River: Living for Keeps in a Forgotten Place and the recent poetry collection Evolution of the Genus Iris. A Yale-trained ecologist and a Guggenheim fellow, he is a full-time writer and naturalist living in the Willapa Hills of southwestern Washington.
David Guterson is the author of the novels East of the Mountains, Our Lady of the Forest, The Other, Ed King, and Snow Falling on Cedars, which won the PEN/Faulkner Award; two story collections, The Country Ahead of Us, the Country Behind and Problems With People; a poetry collection, Songs for a Summons; a memoir, Descent; and Family Matters: Why Homeschooling Makes Sense. He lives with his family on Bainbridge Island in Washington State.
**Don't miss Pyle's Chuckanut Writers later that same day: Conjuring Words from the Land.
