Visit to Mead Public Library Provides Inspiration for a Column

And Krutilla offers a book recommendation.

James Krutilla column: Learning about outdoors easy at the local library. (Sheboygan Press, 2/6/2011)

Excerpt: Our first step was to head to the Mead Public Library for some reading materials. While she perused the children's section with mother, I sought out some materials on the great outdoors and selected a rather lengthy biographical piece by Douglas Brinkley titled, "The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America." For me, the book has been nothing short of fascinating. But rather than recount the highlights from this narrative, I wish to discuss one observation.

"Rather lengthy" translates into 33 compact discs clocking in at 40 hours and 30 minutes for the audiobook format.
