About this book

Award-winning nature writer Rains Wallace brings his unique sense of wonder and lyrical talents to an exploration of this incredibly rich heritage of biodiversity. Now in paperback, The Monkey's Bridge is an epic story of evolution in Central America, and of the human and natural history of its crucial role as the link between the two continents. The ecosystems of Central America are currently endangered by such developments as the expansion of the Panama Canal and the completion of the Pan American highway, making this book an invaluable resource for both ecotourists and conservationists working to preserve the biodiversity of this unique region.
