Product Description

From the Author

Welcome to Costa Rica
Dear Readers, This is the first major photographic book on Costa Rica published in the United States, and a labor of love for me. It is the product of many years of work, photographing wildlife and landscapes, in this extraordinary country. I hope you will enjoy it, and consider giving it to friends who may be planning a visit to Costa Rica. Feel free to e-mail me with your reactions.

Dear Kevin Schaefer: Saw your lovely book about Costa Rica at the Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge last week and HAD to have it. It was $80 in a San Jose book shop, but I'm happy to see that it's much less thru Amazon.com. I've ordered it and hope to have it soon. Nothing else I ever saw captures CR quite like it. The photographs are beautiful and the text insiteful. It truly is a work of love. I recommend it highly to anyone who loves that country and it's special places and wildlife like we do. Thank you, and I hope it sells well! Kathy Dickey

Format: Hardcover
focussing on costa rica's large national parks, this is a highly informative text with lots of colour photos, mainly of the flora & fauna found there. I would say it's aimed more at readers with a specific interest in the environment; tourists or armchair travellers would probably glean more from a dorling kindersley type of book

Costa Rica: The Forests of Eden 8 Sep 2000
By Crochet Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Here in one book were all the shots of flora and fauna that I missed. Upon opening the first page, I was instantly transported back to the rainforest. At times, I felt the author had stood in the same spot that I did to take his photographs. Glorious color that captures the mood, emotions and life in the rainforest. A beautiful book to give anyone who has been to Costa Rica or who can only be an armchair traveler.

Realistic photography 13 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Costa Rica; Forests of Eden is a spectacular book with spectacular photos. The photos are realistic, they give a good view of how things really look. No tricks are used in the photography, so when you go to Costa Rica yourself you can actually see it as it is photographed. The text that goes with the photos give good information about ecotourism and about the environment and animals that are on the photos. The book is made with care of the photographer.
