ABOUT DELIA OWENS:  Delia Owens is the Co-Author of 3 Internationally Bestselling Nonfiction Books about her life as a Wildlife Scientist in Africa: Cry of the KalahariThe Eye of the Elephant, and Secrets of the Savanna.  She has won the John Burroughs Award for Nature Writing and has been Published in NatureThe African Journal of Ecology, and International Wildlife, among many other Publications.  She currently lives in Idaho, where she continues her support for the people and wildlife of Zambia.  Where the Crawdads Sing is her first Novel.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  For Years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast.  So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl.  But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand.  Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved.  When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the Natural World, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder.  Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.
