Bøger af Delia Owens

Forfatteren Delia Owens er en amerikansk vildtforsker, som gennem 23 år har forsket i det afrikanske dyreliv i nogle af Afrikas fjerneste egne. Disse eventyrlige ekspeditioner har bidraget til udarbejdelsen af tre populære internationale nonfiktionsbøger.
I dag har hun til huse i Idaho og med udgivelsen af hendes første roman ude hvor flodkrebsene synger - som er strøget direkte ind på de amerikanske bestsellerlister - beviser hun, at hun i den grad også behersker denne genre til perfektion.

    Opvæksten på marsken i udkanten af den lille by Barkley Cove på North Carolinas kyst har givet Kya Clark kaldenavnet “marskpigen” hos de lokale. Efterladt af sin mor og søskende hos sin alkoholiserede og voldelige far lever Kya en barsk tilværelse, hvor hun må lære at klare sig selv. På trods af hendes status som udstødt, får hendes naturlige skønhed to af byens unge mænd til at få øjnene op for Kya, og et nyt liv åbner sig for hende - men rygterne om marskpigen er mange, og da liget af det lokale hotshot Chase Andrews dukker op, er de lokale ikke sene til at mistænke Kya og det skrøbelige liv hun har kæmpet så hårdt for at opbygge er i fare.Med sin gribende og stormfulde fortælling om overgangen fra barn til voksen viklet ind i en spændende mordgåde er ude hvor flodkrebsene synger  en fængslende roman, som udtrykker en nutidig og samfundskritisk bekymring for vores forståelse af naturen.

    Delia Owens, author of the best-selling Where the Crawdads Sing, began her career writing riveting real-life adventure and wildlife tales with her husband, Mark Owens. Collected in a single volume for the first time, these three odysseys show how the Owenses' ';ingenuity, courage, and accomplishment are beyond exaggeration.' (People) Carrying little more than a change of clothes and a pair of binoculars, two young Americans, Delia and Mark Owens, caught a plane to Africa, bought a third-hand Land Rover, and drove deep into the Kalahari Desert. In this vast wilderness they met animals that had never seen humans before, and leopards, giraffes, and brown hyenas were regular visitors to their camp, all chronicled in Cry of the Kalahari. But the Kalahari is not Eden, and Mark and Delia were continually threatened by wildfires, drought, violent storms, and sometimes by the animals they studied and loved. They set off on another African odyssey in search of a new wilderness in The Eye of the Elephant. They land in a remote valley of Zambia, where the hippos swam in the river just below their tents, lions stalked the bush, and elephants wandered into camp to eat marula fruits. The peace, though, was soon shattered with gunfire, and Delia and Mark were inexorably drawn into a high-stakes struggle to save the wildlife. With Secrets of the Savanna, Delia and Mark tell the dramatic story of their last years in Africa, fighting to save elephants, villagers, andin the endthemselves. The award-winning zoologists and pioneering conservationists describe their work in the remote and ruggedly beautiful Luangwa Valley, in northeastern Zambia.

    An ';exciting' true account of battling the elephant poachers of Zambia by the author of Where the Crawdads Sing and her fellow biologist(The Boston Globe). Intelligent, majestic, and loyal, with lifespans matching our own, elephants are among the greatest of the wonders gracing the African wilds. Yet, in the 1970s and 1980s, about a thousand of these captivating creatures were slaughtered in Zambia each year, killed for their valuable ivory tusks. When biologists Mark and Delia Owens, residing in Africa to study lions, found themselves in the middle of a poaching fray, they took the only side they morally could: that of the elephants. From the authors of Secrets of the Savanna, The Eye of the Elephant is ';part adventure story, part wildlife tale,' recounting the Owens's struggle to save these innocent animals from decimation, a journey not only to supply the natives with ways of supporting their villages, but also to cultivate support around the globe for the protection of elephants (The Boston Globe). Filled with daring exploits among disgruntled hunters, arduous labor on the African plains, and vivid depictions of various wildlife, this remarkable tale is at once an adventure story, a travelogue, a preservationist call to action, and a fascinating examination of both human and animal nature.
