Filled with spectacular photos and unusual escapades, Wild Fibers editor Linda Cortright goes behind the scenes with stories that are both terrifying and comical—a common pattern throughout many of her travels. Cortright narrowly escapes a devastating earthquake in Tibet, being stabbed (by a child!) in Jordan, and a faulty escape route in Afghanistan are just the beginning.
"Many mistakenly think of old ladies with knitting needles when they think of fiber fanatics. Linda Cortright not only blasts this stereotype out the window, she twisted her yarns or tales with compelling prose—making fun of herself and the situations she finds herself in —no matter how harrowing—as she explores the world providing us all with travel insights not just into the world of fiber, but into the worlds from which incredible fiber cultures arise."

The Eye of Fiber
Nearly every sheep or goat in America has a passport from somewhere else. The Eye of Fiber provides a fascinating overview of their history and cultural significance from the desert of Namibia to the mountains in Romania. The Eye of Fiber is a coffee table delight for anyone who enjoys wild fibers.
