Artist’s Corner: John Vaillant on “The Story of Our Time”

John Vaillant, award-winning journalist and non-fiction author of The Tiger and The Golden Spruce shares a brief thought on writing. Even without his bloodhound sense for provocative subject matter, Vaillant’s sentence crafting and storytelling abilities will make anyone jealous:

“I am fascinated by the ongoing collision between human ambition and the natural world. How we manage our collective appetites and ambitions will determine the fate of our children, our species, and much of life on this planet. This, I feel, is the story of our time, and I try to address it in all my writing.”
