Conservationist and historian Betsy Gaines Quammen and journalist David Quammen have been on a virtual book tour, conducted from their home in Bozeman and including special guest Boots the Python.

They’ll join us for the next Access Utah. No word yet whether their python will join us. They’ll be discussing Betsy Gaines Quammen’s new book, “American Zion: Cliven Bundy, God & Public Lands in the West,” and David Quammen’s book “Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Pandemic,” and how current social issues intersect with the two.
