Great book 14 décembre 2010

If you enjoy traveling and are interested in wildlife viewing opportunities, this is a great reference book to have. The info is organized by time of year which I found to be extremely useful for planning purposes. Why that time of year was chosen is indicated. Sometimes it's a migration so it's the only time of year to see the animals, other times it's a specific behavioral aspect but that doesn't mean you're limited to seeing the animals only at that time. Enough explanation is given such that you can make these determinations.

It's also just a fun book to peruse. I bought the book for myself last year, and I recently bought another copy to give as a gift.

The agenda for the wildlife enthusiast 15 avril 2010

"A YEAR OF WATCHING WILDLIFE": I have newer enjoyed any other of my numerous photo books as this one! David Lukas has made a great job and worked really hard to compel this enormous amount of information. This book presents different nature reserves, national parks and similar areas in many different countries, he tells you when to go and why, what wildlife you will see and how, how to arrive to the place and many more useful facts. As a wildlife photographer and nature book author I can't help myself to take this book from time to time, sit on my sofa and browse it's pages just imagining where my next trip will take me. It's an incredibly valuable tool for the professional and a sweet for the amateur. Even if you know you'll newer be able to travel to those places your fantasy is going to take you on incredible trips around the world. If you like or have to travel around the world for wildlife photography, this amazing book is going to solve a lot of planing and research hazard for you.
It's definitely my very best!

A book I keep coming back to 27 mai 2011

I originally bought this book to help plan the timing of wildlife-oriented vacations. It is definitely helpful for that purpose. What I didn't expect is that it is an enjoyable book to pick up and read. I'm often curious about what is happening in wildlife during the current week. Many of the locations we'll never be able to visit, but it is interesting to know what is happening around the world on a given week.

Our daughter (age 12) finds the book interesting too and she's not much of a reader so that's definitely a big "thumbs up" for the book.

When I was given this book for my birthday, I thought, “My god,” has David Lucas (the author of this book even though it is credited to Lonely Planet) been to all these places. Though I haven’t been out with him for years, I remember him as a talented naturalist and good teacher. Here he takes on Lonely Planet’s’ mandate to help travelers, this time those interested in nature. It is a good book tempting nature tourists to times and places where creatures from great bustards to augrabie’s flat lizards can be seen. The photos in the book are very good, although they are not always labeled as to species. The book is also not PR for private touring companies. The web links after each section are to parks and governments.

This said, I have problems with Lonely Planet’s agenda. 40 or more years ago walking around southern Mexico, British Honduras and hitchhiking into Guatemala, I thought I might write a book a la Lenin with a title like, Tourism, Imperialism’s Final Insult. While on the road or in back of what seemed to be WWII Toyota pickup trucks, I realized that my pack, my boots and even my rain coat separated me so completely from the locals that there was almost no bridging the gap. And when I watched locals looking at Americans, Japanese, and French tourists, ugly a la the book of that name about Vietnam, I justified myself by thinking, “at least I slept on the ground and trudged back trails with Indians hauling freight to remote camps.” And I talked with them as human equals both of us speaking a foreign language. The most memorable comment from a Mestizo I heard was when he was looking at an American tourist with a large dog: “The dog eats much more than I do.” I never did write the book but I vaguely remember some one may have.

Now tourism is a giant worldwide business turning the indigenous people of Quintana Roo into maids and bus boys where I remember empty beaches and people farming their milpas or fishing. I just checked and the carbon footprint for world tourism is 5%. Bad or good, I am not sure but certainly most of my friends, even those who are ecotourists, don’t think about it at all or the political-economic impact of their travels. Now I might like to see manta rays in the Maldives or red crabs in Australia, things my neighbors sometimes do and yet, by driving 10 miles and wading in a bay they can chase bat rays or watch Velella also called sea raft, by-the-wind sailor or purple sail when they blow in by the thousands. As Thoreau said, it takes a lifetime to get to know two square miles. The insects in my neighborhood or the weeds of Boston are certainly as interesting as carnivorous plants in the Amazonian rain forest (and there are carnivorous plants to be found in the quaking bogs 15 miles west of Boston) but it is not as romantic as a boat ride up the Amazon.

Enough of my ranting. David Lucas’ book is certainly aesthetic and useful to those who wish to catch sight of the extraordinary in nature. Me, I would rather hear a few more nesting birds sing in my yard in this drought year when the dawn chorus has become ominously quiet.
