#1: Eric Hansen

Posted on 2006-07-08 06:14:29 by K Barrett

I'm just starting Eric Hansen's book on his first travels to Borneo:
'Stranger in the Forest' Anyone else read it? I've tried to start it 3
times, but the timing just wasn't right. I've been reading more reality
based books than fiction these days, so the stars may be in the right
houses.

Hi Kath

I read it some years ago. No orchid stuff but one hell of a read.
Fourth time lucky. Go do it

I've not read it, but if that is a region you're interested in, try
Alfred Russell Wallace's book, --The Malay Archipelago--.

I've never even thought about the region. Wallace is the co-discoverer
of 'the origin of the species' no? And the namee of 'the Wallace line'?

Yes on both counts. He was also a pretty good writer. --The Malay
Archipelago-- contains his thoughts on speciation. He was a
professional specimen collector for museums and wealthy collectors, but
he was also a first class naturalist.
