No fact of natural history is more interesting, or more significant of the poetry of evolution, than the distribution of birds over the entire surface of the world. They have overcome countless obstacles, and adapted themselves to all conditions. The last faltering glance which the Arctic explorer sends toward his coveted goal, ere he admits defeat, shows flocks of snow buntings active with warm life; the storm-tossed mariner in the midst of the sea, is followed, encircled, by the steady, tireless flight of the albatross; the fever-stricken wanderer in tropical jungles listens to the sweet notes of birds amid the stagnant pools; while the thirsty traveller in the desert is ever watched by the distant buzzards. Finally when the intrepid climber, at the risk of life and limb, has painfully made his way to the summit of the most lofty peak, far, far above him, in the blue expanse of thin air, he can distinguish the form of a majestic eagle or condor.

Explorer and gifted writer, William Beebe escapes from the violence of World War 1 into the jungle of British Guiana. As a naturalist, ornithologist, marine biologist, entomologist, he finds in the jungle a different kind of violence provided by nature. Beebe's curiosity, patience and powers of observation focus on and magnify nature s raw details revealing the huge drama being played out in the tropical jungle. From, his adventures aboard ship, the Hoatzin, a rare bird that never leaves home, hordes of Army Ants on the attack, snakes crawling at night, the Hindu immigrants who work the plantations, the building of a new road by convicts, Beebe colorfully describes a true adventure observing nature on human terms. William Beebe is one of the founders of the field of ecology and an early advocate for conservation. When wrote Jungle Peace, he was the curator of Birds at New York Zoological Park and was director of the Tropical Research Station. Some years later, he was the first biologist to observe deep-sea life in the original underwater Bathysphere. There are 11 chapters in Jungle Peace, plus an enthusiastic Review by Theodore Roosevelt. Read by Andre Stojka
