Search - List of Books by Sally Carrighar

Sally Carrighar (1898–1985) was an American naturalist and writer. She is especially known for her series of nature books chronicling the lives of wild animals. Humans are often absent from these tales.

Carrighar's work is based on years of observation. For example, she spent ten years in the Arctic, and seven observing at Beetle Rock in California before writing her famous books. These are seen as classics of nature writing and may be viewed as a specialized form of travel literature.

Several of her most popular titles are The Twilight Seas, Icebound Summer, One Day at Teton Marsh and One Day at Beetle Rock.

Other books by this author include Wild Voice Of The North, Moonlight at Midday, The Glass Dove, and Wild Heritage. She attended Wellesley College for two years and would have graduated with the class of 1922, but had to leave due to sickness.
