When Jim Sterba handed me a copy of his autobiographical book, Frankie’s Place, shortly after we finished taping an episode of Wildfire last August, and said something modest like he hoped I’d like it – it was about their summer place on Mount Desert Island - I was skeptical. In fact, I put it aside until the Christmas ice storm when I was perusing my shelf of unread books and came across it.
Jim was a foreign correspondent for decades for the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. He was on Wildfire, the TV talk show I host with Harry Vanderweide, to discuss his terrific book, Nature Wars. You can find my review of that book in this section of my website. And you can access that Wildfire episode on Maine Audubon’s website.
