About this book

The state of Tamaulipas in Mexico is the northernmost tropical cloud forest of the Western Hemisphere. Within its humid oak-sweetgum woodlands, tropical and temperate species of plants and animals mingle in rare diversity, creating a mecca for birders and other naturalists. Here the Websters recount their many adventures as researchers and tour leaders from their base at Rancho del Cielo.

The Websters have produced an entertaining and informative account of a magical place... Their book should be of interest not only to those familiar with El Cielo or with other natural areas in Mexico, but also to anyone drawn to natural history, travel, and memorable places. Lane Simonian, author of Defending the Land of the Jaguar: A History of Conservation in Mexico
