Wild Snail Eating

I recently read The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, a story about isolation and the natural world.

Award-winning author Elisabeth Tova Bailey tells us about the mysterious condition that left her bedridden and the companion that got her through some of her darkest days.

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is a story of struggle, acceptance, loss, companionship, research, and letting go. It is a personal memoir and an introduction to the natural history of snails.

Educators can find K-16 curriculum, as well as a slideshow about the book, on the author’s website.
