Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 96

Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort this week as we begin a conversation with SIU Press authors Fred Delcomyn and James L. Ellis, who co-wrote A Backyard Prairie: The Hidden Beauty of Tallgrass and Wildflowers. Released in the summer of 2021, this book documents a seventeen-year-long restoration of Fred Delcomyn’s two-and-a-half-acre backyard in central Illinois to its natural state of tallgrass prairie.
