The Pen and The Sword: Melissa Sevigny documents the lives of Lois Jotter and Elzada Clover, two botanists who mapped the plant life of the Grand Canyon, in her new book Brave the Wild River.


Science Writer Melissa Sevigny joins Taya Jae on The Pen and The Sword to discuss her latest book, Brave the Wild River, the value of curiosity and where she finds hope about the state of water in the west.

The first time Taya was on the radio was a KVNF pledge drive promo recorded in 1998, she was 5. It went something like this, “I like KVNF because it’s fun to listen to music” she goes on to say, “music is like a dream”.
