Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Captivated while still young by the splendor and profusion of the tropics, Alexander Skutch, world-renowned ornithologist and author of twelve books on tropical birds, resolved to devote his life to its study and interpretation. For well over half a century, he has painstakingly observed the creatures that surround him, particularly the birds, and he has thought long and deeply - perhaps more than most naturalists - about the significance of this abundant life. In this reflective account of life in the tropics, Skutch offers readers both his observations and his interpretations of what he has experienced. He brings a thoughtful, unequaled voice to the description of the world he has grown to know and understand, a world considered forbidding by most northerners and still largely unexplored.
