WILD FIBERS Five Years of Favorites

by | Read by Linda Cortright

Contemporary Culture • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged Selections • © 2010

Linda Cortright travels far and wide to learn about the people who breed and care for the exotic animals that provide specialty wool and cashmere for spinning, weaving, and knitting. Her amazing adventures, culled from WILD FIBERS MAGAZINE, where she is editor and publisher, are full of fascinating vignettes about survival in some of the harshest environments in the world. Her treks include a visit with nomadic yak herders in Tibet and a helicopter sheep rescue muster in New Zealand. Cortright, who raises a small herd of cashmere goats in Maine, lends her journeys audible wit and humor. One can hear her respect for these animals and their caretakers in her voice. Her stories and delivery demonstrate her profound appreciation for the people and creatures who struggle to produce these specialty fibers.
