Ruby McConnell will discuss her new book, Ground Truth: A Geological Survey of Life, available from Righton Books here.
Ruby McConnell morphs natural history and memoir to portray the forces and landscapes that have helped shape a region and the people who live in it. Challenging the notions of the region, McConnell explores the Northwest and the decades-long struggle over resources since the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. St. Helens in May 1980.
Ruby McConnell’s newest book Ground Truth: A Geological Survey of a Life will be released by Overcup Press in April 2020. McConnell is a registered geologist and outdoor adventurer who writes about nature, art, and culture with a particular emphasis on the intersection of the environment and human experience.
A recipient of numerous honors, including the Literary Arts Oregon Literary Fellowship, McConnell has written extensively about the Pacific Northwest and the environment in scientific and literary journals. She is the author of two previous titles, A Girl’s Guide to the Wild and A Woman’s Guide to the Wild, and lives in Oregon with her husband, Paul.
