ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE Letters from the Malay Archipelago ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE Letters from the Malay Archipelago   layout image

by John van Wyhe / Kees Rookmaaker

This volume brings together the letters of the great Victorian naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) during his famous travels of 1854-62 in the Malay Archipelago (now Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia), which led him to come independently to the same conclusion as Charles Darwin: that evolution occurs through natural selection. Beautifully written, they are filled with lavish descriptions of the remote regions he explored, the peoples, and fascinating details of the many new species of mammals, birds, and insects he discovered during his time there.

A FEATHERED RIVER ACROSS THE SKY A FEATHERED RIVER ACROSS THE SKY   layout image

by Joel Greenberg

The passengers pigeons' propensity to nest, roost, and fly together in vast numbers made them vulnerable to unremitting market and recreational hunting. The spread of railroads and telegraph lines created national markets that allowed the birds to be pursued relentlessly. No serious effort was made to protect the species until it was way too late. Greenberg's beautifully written story of the passenger pigeon provides a cautionary tale of what happens when species and natural resources are not harvested sustainably. 289pp. 2014
