Reviews

"[Beehler's] memoir vividly describes the forests and wildlife that are his passion while offering an unromantic view of how 'environmental carpetbaggers' like himself work--warts and all."--Margaret Pizer, Conservation Magazine--Margaret Pizer"Conservation Magazine" (07/01/2008)
"This is a marvelous account of rain forest field biology and conservation. It captures the life of modern day conservation field biologists unlike any other book I know of."--Thomas E. Lovejoy, The Heinz Center for Science, Economics and the Environment

--Thomas E. Lovejoy
"I was riveted by this book. What E.O. Wilson conveys for the insect world, Bruce Beehler accomplishes for rainforest birds."--Meg Lowman, author of Life in the Treetops and It's a Jungle Up There
