About this book

A first-hand account of the human effects on rain forests, drawn from the author's three years spent travelling the rain forests of the world. First published in 1985, reissued in 1991 with a new afterword.

From the publisher's announcement:

In the Rainforest takes us to Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia, revealing a colorful and bizarre world where fish live on fruit, spiders prey on birds, and violets grow to the size of apple trees.

"I recommend In the Rainforest as scientific journalism at its best, and [Caufield's] book as the one to read to become informed about the tropical crisis. Caufield traveled the world, went to the difficult places, sometimes beautiful and often dispiriting, mastered the important ideas, and talked to an impressive number of people on all sides of the issues. . . . There are villains in abundance: corrupt government agents who aid in the destruction of native tribes, greedy caballero landowners, and even the governmental planners who with the best of intentions rush heedlessly toward the environmental degradation of their own countries."--E. O. Wilson, Science

"The whole book is filled with amazing facts. . . . Moving and informative."--Ellen W. Chu, New York Times Book Review
