Product Details


“[A] lovely travelogue. . . . Part memoir-style recollections of [Alexander’s] incredible encounters with shamans and hyenas, part call-to-action.” —Austin Chronicle

“Alexander shares a lifetime of travel to places as farflung as Bhutan and Belize, where she encountered some of the world’s most endangered species.” —National Geographic

“Part international-travel diary, part memoir, sprinkled with educational tidbits about how to help endangered species.” —Miami Herald
“Alexander is the visionary that will inspire today’s environmental movement.” —Lynne Cox, author of Swimming in the Sink

“A moving and inspiring look at the crucial work of wildlife preservationists across the globe.” —Time Out Philadelphia
“[A] clear-eyed and beautifully produced book.” —Press Democrat (Santa Rosa, CA)
“An urgent and heartfelt memoir. We are teetering toward the end of nature, and Jane’s vivid prose may be just the thing to wake us up before it’s too late.” —Seth Godin, author of What to Do When it’s Your Turn (and it’s Always Your Turn)
“Impassioned. . . . The real force of the book resides in the author’s articulation of her exhilaration of the wonders of nature . . . and her willingness to ford streams, slash through jungles, and scale mountains to defend it.” —Publishers Weekly
“A pleasure to read, reminiscent of the work of Osa and Martin Johnson, the Lindberghs, and Rachel Carson. But along with her delight and discovery, we share Alexander’s sadness at the fast-disappearing ecological richness of our world.” —Kathleen Spivack, author of Unspeakable Things
“An intimate and important look at the state of wildlife conservation in an increasingly shrinking world.” —Booklist
