★★★★★ The publisher provided a copy for review.
What happens when you unleash curious scientists on the uncharted natural world? What marvels can be uncovered when researchers explore rare and declining animal species?
Well, if you document their search and interactions like Dinerstein did - and are a good writer, readers get a stunning report that reads like fiction sometimes and like a good adventure novel at other times.
This book encourages the reader to appreciate the animals in their habitats - geography, botany, proximity to humans, etc. I also found myself engrossed in the beauty of God's creation. What a marvelous world we live in! We can hardly imagine the creativity around us, hidden and in full display.
Honestly, as a Christian, I also enjoyed the privilege of worshipping an endlessly inventive, beauty-loving Creator. How kind he is to share his treasures with us! And how much fun it must be for him to watch us unfold and exclaim over what he has always known.
GOOD FUN, very informative, and well worth reading. Belongs in my library for further contemplation and enjoyment.
