On Thursday, March 24th at 7:30 p.m., Ed Kanze, naturalist, author, photographer, and Adirondack guide, will give a slide presentation at Saranac Village at Will Rogers. His talk will tell the story of a nine-month, 25,000 mile journey Ed and his wife Debbie made around Australia. The trip is described in Ed's book, Kangaroo Dreaming: An Australian Wildlife Odyssey, jointly published in 2000 by Random House and Sierra Club Books.
