Book Overview
From New York Times bestselling author Ann Patchett comes State of Wonder, a provocative and assured novel of morality and miracles; science and sacrifice, set in the Amazon rainforest. Full of remarkable events-fights with anacondas; encounters with cannibals; deaths; re-births-and profound moral decisions come together in a novel that will enthrall your students. Patchett is a master storyteller who has an entertaining habit of dropping ordinary people into extraordinary and exotic circumstances to see what they're made of. An] expansive page-turner . . . Patchett's fluid prose dissolves in the suspense of this out-there adventure...that readers will hate to see end.-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
