Meet Carol Ruckdeschel the wildest woman in America

The book Untamed introduces Carol Ruckdeschel, the wildest woman in America. The blurb describes her as Henry David Thoreau and Jane Goodall rolled in to one. It is the story of an American original standing her ground and fighting for what she believes in, against heavy odds

Carol is a self-taught scientist who has become a tireless defender of sea turtles on Cumberland Island, a national park off the coast of Georgia and lives in a ramshackle cabin that she built herself. Cumberland is the country's largest and most biologically diverse barrier island

The fight between a dirt-poor naturalist and the wealthiest families in America is graphically described.
