Product Description


"[Flannery] is a cultural landmark. . . . Long may he write. . . . Enthusiasm, wonder, the love of the chase, are all part of Flannery's science, as is the writerly engine of not knowing how things are going to turn out until the business is done. . . . Flannery's writerly art stirs the imagination to pay attention."--"Australian" "Richly detailed accounts of his work and life as an explorer."--"Booklist" "Highly readable. . . . In this book, Flannery offers readers insight into his extraordinary career. . . . Accessible, provocative and well worth investigating."--"Kirkus Reviews" "[Flannery's] reviews are a joy to read."--"Publishers Weekly" "It's . . . an ongoing pleasure to review Flannery's books. . . . Take away all the other things Flannery has done in his 19th-century-style crowded life and you still have one hell of a writer. . . . There's a tone of undisguised wonder running through virtually all the pieces in this latest collection."--Open Letters Monthly
