Sobre o livro
Adventures of a Wandering Naturalist
Come with me on adventures to exotic destinations and in your backyard, exploring the wonders of nature both on land and undersea. Dive spectacular Palancar reef off the Mexican Caribbean island of Cozumel, as well as on the sunken Japanese ships from World War II that litter the floor of Chuuk Lagoon in the Eastern Caroline Islands. Visit the artistically stunning pre-Columbian Mayan ruins of Copan in jungles of Honduras in Central America and the ancient Micronesian stone fortress city of Nan Madol off the South Pacific island of Pohnpei. Explore the secrets of a decaying log in the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest and the captivating undersea realm of the kelp forest. Stroll among the booths and crowds of Mayan Indians on Market Day at Chichicastenango in the Guatemalan Highlands. And lie on your belly on a grassy knoll on a warm summer day in Central California to watch unfold the grisly reproductive ritual of the spider and the wasp. Within the pages of this slim volume are adventures to whet your appetite for yet more to learn about the endlessly fascinating spectacles of Nature and the ancient and timeless cultures of native peoples around the world.
