あらすじ・解説

Janisse Ray grew up in a junkyard along US Highway 1, hidden from Florida-bound vacationers by the hedge at the edge of the road and by hulks of old cars and stacks of blown-out tires. Ecology of a Cracker Childhood tells how a childhood spent in rural isolation and steeped in religious fundamentalism grew into a passion to save the almost vanished longleaf pine ecosystem that once covered the South. In language at once colloquial, elegiac, and informative, Ray redeems two Souths.

Wonderful yet poignant

This book is a tale of knowledge, history, biology and the wonderment of childhood all rolled in one. It is especially poignant in this time of climate collapse. Listen carefully.

I absolutely LOVED this book

I grew up in Georgia during the same time period, and even though my childhood was more suburban than Janisse Ray's, there's so much in this book with which I could identify. Her story-telling was captivating, and I found the history and ecology interspersed with family anecdotes to be fascinating. There are some painful moments for the author in this book, but she embraces them as she shares them with the rest of us, and I wanted to attend a family reunion and hug them all by the time I was done.

The fact that she narrated the book herself with her lovely, soft Southern accent only makes the story more touching and authentic. This is an audio book to which I'll definitely listen again.

Janisse's ewords are powerful when read aloud.

Excellent recording of an excellent history. I thank Janisse for speaking for trees and animals.

I identified with Janisse

I'm a woman in my 30s who grew up working class in rural Montana, and Ray's stories and knowledge were so familiar to me. I loved how she wove her childhood around naturalist expositions about the Georgian landscape. Only a few times were the environmental descriptions unengaging.

Her reading was sweet and easily understood. You will want to be her friend after listening to this audiobook. She and her family--though troubled at times--seemed like salt-of-the-earth people. Great listen.

Real life 'Overstory' segment

Enjoyed the content and the added bonus of author's narration. Part personal history, part ecology.

I remember The Goat Man! Wonderful stories of childhood and fond memories of playing in the junkyard.

Absolutely stunning

Ray’s beautiful prose is at once accessible and breathtaking. Don’t skip the ecology chapters. They are fascinating and important. I loved this book. Her narration just made it that much more special.
