Elisabeth Tova Bailey

Elisabeth Tova Bailey's natural history/memoir, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, has received a National Outdoor Book Award in Natural History Literature and a John Burroughs Medal Award for Distinguished Natural History. The story of Elisabeth's year-long observations of a wild Maine woodland snail is finding a universal audience regardless of age, gender, or walk of life. But the book holds a particular interest for readers who love natural history and because the backdrop to the story is chronic illness, it is also finding a special home in the hearts of patients and medical professionals. Elisabeth lives in Maine.
