About this book

These vivid reflections trace the life of a man in love with and fascinated by the natural world. From his 1930s boyhood explorations of New Jersey's Island Beach to a teenage encounter with a killer whale in the far-off reaches of Tierra del Fuego to a mid-life trip to explore the northernmost Eskimo habitation in North America, William Warner's observations on the natural world inspire awe and the experiences he describes are astounding.
