Local author James McVey will be signing copies of his latest book, Loon Rangers, at Horizon Books in Traverse City. Winner of the Prism Prize for Climate Literature, Loon Rangers is a novel set in the Adirondack Mountains during the summer of 1984. It tells the story of two wildlife biologists who conduct a common loon survey in the northern Adirondack region. The novel--part travelogue, part natural history, part reflection--addresses two major issues of our time: species extinction and what it means to live in the Anthropocene. Loon Rangers is McVey' fifth book.
