Jean Craighead George wrote many books about nature and protecting the environment. I recently reread The Talking Earth, which is about a young Seminole girl name Billie Wind who spends 3 months on her own in the Everglades. When Billie Wind says that she doesn’t believe the legends of her people, she’s sent to spend a night on an island to commune with nature. She’s trapped by a wildfire, discovers artifacts from her ancestors, and befriends a young otter. After those eventful first days, she decides that she will explore the Everglades until she can understand what the animals are saying to her.
