About the Author:

Paul Beaver received his doctorate from the University of Chicago in 1976 and taught at the University of Washington and Purdue University. He has worked and explored the western forests of the Amazon for 29 years. Beaver currently is operations manager of Yale University's Tahuayo River Amazon Research Center and operates an ecotourism company, Amazonia Expeditions.

Review:

I have only had the privilege of traveling with Amazonia Expeditions once, but Paul Beaver's tales of the jungle remind me to search my photo albums and plan for the day I can return to the wild and untamed lands he describes in DIARY OF AN AMAZON JUNGLE GUIDE. Trying to classify this book as a work of literary excellence would only be doing it an injustice. Although the scientist shows through, the science never overwhelms. DIARY is a fascinating glimpse into a hidden world that makes one feel as though you've just stepped off a river boat at Iquitos, exhausted, but filled with the wonders of nature and good friendships. DIARY OF AN AMAZON JUNGLE GUIDE is an insightful and real-world thrilling read. You'll reach for the bug spray more than once while perusing this down-to-earth accounting of life in one of nature's most wonderous of wonderlands. --John Warmus, author
