This reprint of a classic of natural history is an account of one of two amateur scientists shipwrecked on Great Inagua Island in the Bahamas in 1930. While his colleague returned to civilization, the author stayed for nine years to investigate the wildlife of the land and sea. This book, part memoir, part natural history, part adventure, records Glingel's acute observations, and is remarkable for the way it records his transformation from a callow snob to a sensitive recorder of this islands natural splendour.
