A phenomenal book! Although bibliophiles may dislike some of the unevenness, bosky prose, and sometimes ragged style, everyone will appreciate the unaffectedness of the book, like a friend's face with its moles and distinctive lines; the book grows on one as one proceeds in reading it. Although classified as a nature book, its better classed as a travel book. Descriptions of people, places, and episodes are great; reflections and mini-meditations naturally bloom in the text, some are moral insights that took philosophers over a hundred years to give due consideration to (especially those on pages 163-164). The appendices are fascinating in their own right: they include native's names for flora and fauna.
