Letter: Wausau native's book was a page-turner

Wausau native's book a page-turner

EDITOR: I have just finished reading a book - the kind that is hard to put down, and felt compelled to write these words. The title of the book is "When the Animals Vanished." The author is Mary Wirz, a unique young woman who lives right here in Wausau. I met her only once, for a brief time, but saw in her eyes and heard in her soft voice the love of nature, all animals and the world.

As I read, I marveled at Wirz's intellect and wit and loved her way with words. The story is fiction, but the facts are real. The first sentence in the book is, "If you were told that your life depended on a winged insect weighing 1/300th of an ounce, would you believe it? Would you care?"

Can you recall the last time you saw a honey bee? Read the book. The beautiful poems at the beginning of each chapter are written by an intriguing young man, also from Wausau - who just might be your mailman.
