About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, a major international travel destination in the Americas, brings both spectacular natural history and environmental issues to a wide general audience. Although few in numbers, the frogs, toads and salamanders of the Yucatan, represent a variety of amazing adaptations that will entice even the indifferent reader. While there is a wealth of archaeological information on the Yucatan, there is little available on its biological issues for the people of Mexico or the international audience. Of Two Worlds / De Dos Mundos communicates the importance, wonder and plight of these creatures, by providing their natural history in an informative and engaging way.

Media reviews

"I have read with deep delight the pages of this book and also had fun with the compilation of quotes, from diverse literary works, popular sayings, fables, and other anecdotes related to amphibians. The literary investigation conducted by the author to compile these quotes is astonishing, but not less astonishing is his mastery in translating scientific terminology, phenomena and other technical issues into a clear and uncomplicated popular language."
– Oscar Flores Villela, Professor of Biology, UNAM, Mexico, in his Introduction
