"Writing in the best tradition of the great naturalist explorers."--Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring

"This is a classic and it remains as fresh and vibrant as ever."--Marine Turtle Newsletter

"A delightful and absorbing adventure story, which acquires those characteristics through the author's love of nature and its creatures, both human and otherwise."--San Francisco Examiner

Archie Carr's unmatched style of nature writing, accessible to experienced naturalists and laypersons alike, explores some of nature's darkest mysteries with humor and much delight. His delightful stories of exploring the Caribbean while researching green turtles brings to life his deep passion for the people and biological diversity of the tropics.
