About this book

Biographical and autobiographical study of Archie Carr (1909 – 1987) the eminent naturalist, writer, conservationist, and world authority on sea turtles. This captivating collection of anecdotal, yet detailed, essays typifies the work and insights of the man, and also reflects his particular fascination for this remarkable ecosystem, where he lived for fifty years. Carr was, as Wilson writes in the Foreword, "[...] the South's greatest regional naturalist of his generation [...] No writer exceeds Carr in his ambidextrous handling of human and natural history."

Republished with a new preface by his son, David Carr.
