About the Author:

Marty Essen began writing professionally in the 1990s, as a features writer for Gig Magazine. His first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents, won six national awards, and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune named it a "Top Ten Green Book." His second book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico, won four national awards. Marty is also a popular college speaker. He has performed the stage-show version of Cool Creatures, Hot Planet on hundreds of campuses, in forty-five states. Marty's latest book, Time Is Irreverent, is a science-fiction political-comedy. The switch in genres doesn't mean a switch in ideals. Like all of Marty's books, it reflects his values of protecting human rights and the environment--and does so with a wry sense of humor.

Review:

"A magical, fun journey through some of the world's hidden and not so hidden Edens, as seen through the eyes of a true wildlife aficionado and author whose writing makes the pages come alive and vibrate with the sound and pulse of nature. A book that once started is impossible to put down."
--Dr. M. Sanjayan, Senior Scientist at Conservation International and Television Host
 
"Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico is impressively informative and a lot of fun. Ideal for the armchair traveler and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to community library collections."
--Midwest Book Review
 
"Join photographer extraordinaire Marty Essen and his intrepid wife Deb on their adventures through four Endangered Edens. You'll be treated to funny stories, unforgettable characters, and striking images. But most of all, you'll come away with new appreciation for special places, and their wild inhabitants, under threat today. May this book inspire its readers to protect them!"
--Sy Montgomery, author, The Soul of an Octopus
 
"I highly recommend that everyone join author Marty Essen and his wife, Deb, as they explore our planets' Endangered Edens. After reading about these last great wild places, you will surely be tempted to visit them and more importantly protect them for future generations to enjoy."
--Cindy Shogan, Executive Director, Alaska Wilderness League
