This monthly gathering is designed for book-lovers and nature enthusiasts. Every month we'll discuss a book about the environment, nature, or related topics. The books will be both non-fiction and fiction, covering a broad range of environmental issues. A diversity of viewpoints will be represented. The discussions are sure to be lively and informative!

The Nature Book Group will provide a foundation in classic environmental literature. We will also explore contemporary nature writing. This gathering is a great way to share your passion for the natural world and to formulate new ideas.

Discussions will take place in the library at Creek Bend Nature Center on the third Wednesday of every month at 7 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.

Neither Wolf nor Dog:
Kent Nerburn draws the reader deep into the world of an Indian elder known only as Dan. It’s a world of Indian towns, white roadside cafes, and abandoned roads that swirl with the memories of the Ghost Dance and Sitting Bull. Readers meet vivid characters like Jumbo, a 400-pound mechanic, and Annie, an 80-year-old Lakota woman living in a log cabin. Threading through the book is the story of two men struggling to find a common voice. Neither Wolf nor Dog takes readers to the heart of the Native American experience.
