Tales of a Journeyman Naturalist


by Terry C. Maxwell

In this charming memoir, Maxwell shares his unusual adventures as a naturalist, taking us from tropical jungles to the frozen tundra of Alaska, from such odd places as the Devil’s Sinkhole in Texas to the exotic Galapagos Islands. What he does as a naturalist alone holds our attention, though it is how he performs his work that will have us retelling stories from this book long after we finish reading it.
