GreenTracks Book Review

Peru's Amazonian Eden: Manu National Park and Biosphere Reserve
by Kim MacQuarrie (Author), John Terborgh (Author), Jordi Blassi (Editor), Andre Bärtschi (Photographer)

This richly illustrated book is a labor of love. It traces the history of the Manu region, the origin of the park and those responsible, provides an overview of flora and fauna and covers resident indigenous populations in depth. Concluding comments deal with the future of the reserve. Check lists of flora and fauna and an extensive bibliography are provided. Considerable effort has been made to identify the species depicted in the color photographs and for the most part they are correct. The images made by André Bärtschi are exceptional.
