Swimming With Frogs



Swimming With Frogs: Life in the Brown County Hills by Ruth Ann Ingraham

I was particularly interested in this new title from IU Press, because for the better part of 26 years, I lived no more than 20 minutes from the hills of Brown County, and have always loved that corner of Indiana best.

Ingraham has translated years of journaling into this simple and easy to read tome about the cabin she and her husband bought in the hills to best enjoy all that nature has to offer. Ingraham's lets us into her family and life, and also provides detailed information about the flora, fauna and inhabitants of this area. I know more about mushrooms and Indiana orchids than I ever thought I would!

A quick read, Ingraham's book is interesting and filled with information - especially if you are familiar with the Brown County area.
