Writer, naturalist and activist Janisse Ray is author of three books of literary nonfiction. Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, published by Milkweed Editions in 1999. Anne Raver of The New York Times said of Janisse Ray, "The forests of the South find their Rachel Carson." The book won a Southeastern Booksellers Award 1999, an American Book Award 2000, the Southern Environmental Law Center 2000 Award for Outstanding Writing, and a Southern Book Critics Circle Award 2000. Ray's second book, Wild Card Quilt: Taking a Chance on Home, about rural community, was published by Milkweed Editions in early 2003. The third, Pinhook: Finding Wholeness in a Fragmented Land, was published by Chelsea Green in 2005. Ray produced In One Place: The Natural History of a Georgia Farmer by Milton Hopkins, out in 2001. She co-edited, with Susan Cerulean and Laura Newton, Between Two Rivers: Stories from the Red Hills to the Gulf (2004). In 2007 Ray started a small press, Wildfire, in order to publish Southern nature writing; an anthology of local stories about a Georgia preserve, Moody Forest, is recently out. She holds an MFA from the University of Montana, and in 2007 was awarded an honorary doctorate from Unity College in Maine. In 2008 she is on the faculty of Chatham University's low-residency MFA program. She will also teach at Wildbranch Writing Workshop, the Island Institute's Sitka Symposium, and Unity College's workshop for teachers, "Education in a Changing Climate."
