Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents
Encante Press, LLC, 31 aug 2006 - 455 pagina's
Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents follows Marty and Deb Essen on a three-and-a-half-year-long adventure to some of the wildest places on all seven continents.
The American couple began crisscrossing the globe with the simple intention of searching for rare and interesting wildlife. When their travels coincided with the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the added element made them unwitting ambassadors for peace. Their experiences--from amusing to life threatening--changed their lives forever.
Winner: Green Book Festival Award for Animals
"This is a wonderful book--a labor of love--that describes in soul-stirring language what it is like to live with the people, the animals, the birds, the snakes, the insects, the jungles, the treacherous rivers, the gorgeous scenery of seven continents. It is the best travel and exploratory work I have yet encountered. Marty Essen and his wife, Deb, are two highly intelligent, imaginative, and brave people."

A lot fascinating stories from a normal kind of guy. I like this book because the author does not come off as a macho, conceited explorer type. He has a fear of heights and a fear o deep water, and yet he still manages to have great adventures. Volledige review lezen
