Delia Owens es coautora de los tres libros de no ficción más vendidos a nivel internacional sobre su vida como científica de vida silvestre en África. Tiene una licenciatura en zoología de la Universidad de Georgia y un doctorado en comportamiento animal de la Universidad de California en Davis. Ha ganado el premio John Burroughs por escritura sobre la naturaleza y ha sido publicada en Nature, The African Journal of Ecology e International Wildlife , entre muchos otros. Vive en las montañas de Carolina del Norte. Donde cantan los Crawdads es su primera novela.

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.

Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.
