We just celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act and here at the Mesa County Libraries, we had a lovely display of John Fielder’s framed photographs on our walls. With all the interest, I wanted to share a list of wonderful Wild Reads that someone graciously shared with me. This was compiled by Southpark, CO Broadband Leader, Misi Ballard.
