Outside Magazine includes Camille Dungy in the article “Women Writing About the Wild: 25 Essential Authors.” “The following list is in no way definitive, but if you want a primer on some of the best nature writing you probably haven’t read yet, you’d do well to start with these 25 women.”
Edwidge Danticat says this about Guidebook to Relative Strangers: Part memoir, part travelogue, part parental guide, this book is a stunningly beautiful love letter from a mother to her daughter to help her daughter embrace the world she lives in, to introduce her to her ancestors, and prepare her for the future.
Thanks to The Brooklyn Rail for including Trophic Cascade in the list of 25 Best Books of Poetry for 2017!.
