Advocating Nature Conservation With Fiction

Nature Conservation Novel

A reader of my novel, Corr Syl the Warrior, emailed a review today that I decided to share.  The novel is my first attempt to use fiction to promote nature conservation.  Arizona librarians chose it as Arizona’s 2014 OneBookAZ for teen readers.  You may download the eBook free from www.OneBookAZ.org.

Review of Corr Syl, April 4, 2014

Kirkus Best of 2013“Corr Syl the Warrior by Garry Rogers surprised me. From the book cover and the title I thought I was in for a sci-fi romp through the galaxy. Although that would have been fun I was much more entertained and brought to my senses with a touching story of Corr, a rabbit with super intelligence and his friend Rhya. I felt the communal sense of the animal kingdom from the up close observations of several other animal characters as Corr is introduced. In Garry’s book, what stands out are the feelings his characters evoke through their thoughtful and sapient actions. The environment is at risk here. That message is clear. Corr, with a tender heart, leads his tribe, the Tsaeb, to conquer misguided humans and animals, to defend the earth and its resources, to right wrongs, and as is beautifully and memorably put, “to persist, for like unworthy thoughts, dangerous individuals and species appear from time to time and civilization needs its defenders.”
