Bonta makes the interaction between culture and avifauna in Latin America a key to better understanding the practice of biodiversity protection. He recognizes the ravages of both human pressures and natural disasters on the birds and forests, but shows that in many instances birds are safe and even thrive in the presence of local people, who `celebrate them just as often as they persecute them'.
... beautifully written, and deserves to be on the naturalist's bookshelf alongside the classic works of Aldo Leopold, Peter Matthiessen, and John McPhee. - Gregory Knapp; "... a fresh (and refreshing) account of the intimate Interaction among the Honduran landscape, birds, and local inhabitants." - Miles Richardson, Louisiana State University
