The Wildest Woman in America and the Fight for Cumberland IslandBook - 2014
"A combination of Henry David Thoreau and Jane Goodall, Carol [Ruckdeschel] is a self-taught scientist who has become a tireless defender of sea turtles on Cumberland Island, a national park off the coast of Georgia ... In recent years, Carnegie heirs and the National Park Service have clashed with Carol over the island's future. What happens when a dirt-poor naturalist with only a high-school diploma tries to stop one of the wealthiest families in America?"--Dust jacket flap.
