Ithaca: Cornell University Press, (2014. second edition). Large octavo, dustwrapper, colour photographs, maps.
Takes readers on a stunning visual journey through one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world. In these remarkable photographs, a puma stands majestically on a tree limb surveying the forest below; an iridescent blue butterfly flutters through the air; the jewel-like feathers of a resplendent quetzal sparkle in a cloud forest; a female sea snake and her newly born offspring struggle across a beach under a relentless sun; and early morning light reveals a turtle spraying clouds of sand over its nest. The second edition of this book includes over 100 new photographs, new maps, a new introduction, and updated text throughout. Bringing together dramatic images and informative descriptions, this book provides a remarkable account of wild animals in Costa Rica, their behaviour, and the sublime landscapes that they inhabit.
