Gone Feral: Tracking my Dad Through the Wild

Filed under: book related,media related,women heroes — Honilima @ 11:50 pm

To say that Novella Carpenter has had an unconventional life would be an understatement. She is an urban farmer in Oakland California and is quite the talented writer. Her book Gone Feral is about her search to find her father and to try to piece together why he had been so illusive in their lives and what that means to her as a woman hoping to begin her own family. She has a great writing style and her father loss is apparent as does her need to try to understand what would lead a man to abandon his wife and two young daughters.

Listen to her interview on KQED‘s program Forum and then read her book and perhaps like me you will want to read her book about her urban farming.
