Delia Owens on "Where the Crawdads Sing"
It's almost in Canada, with a view of Montana. That's how remote this northern corner of Idaho really is, worlds away from almost everything, except nature. For writer Delia Owens, it's heaven. Wildlife is her church, vast isolation her muse.
Does she get lonely out here? "I do. I get so lonely sometimes I feel like I can't breathe."
"But you like a part of that though, right?" asked correspondent Lee Cowan.
"I do, I do. And I decided to write a book about it."
That book, "Where the Crawdads Sing," has become a phenomenon. At a recent book fair in Savannah, Georgia, she had readers lined up around the block just to meet her.
