About the Book
In Stalking the Wild Dragonfly, Green describes her personal encounters with wildlife in nature, and presents scientific research on each creature for greater understanding. Animal stories have wide appeal, and most people have a few tales of their own to tell. But Nancy shares a unique perspective drawn from a lifetime of living in national parks with her ranger husband, in addition to her international travels through other world-wide wilderness areas. Wilderness is also a character in these stories of top-tier species – some of which are sliding toward the brink of extinction.
Praise for the Book
Stalking the Wild Dragonfly: Stories of Experiences in Nature is an in-depth look at Green’s experiences with the wildlife of the Canyon she fell in love with. Mountain lions, elk, birds and bobcats, even scorpions and snakes all have their place in the ecosystem and in Green’s personal journey. Even animals like grizzly bears, who no longer inhabit the area, are linked to the author’s memories growing up in northern Arizona. These aren’t just personal stories and anecdotes, however. Green wanted readers to gain a deeper understanding of the wildlife that calls the Canyon home.—Erin Ford, Grand Canyon News
