ISBN: 0520232755 | 2013 | EPUB | 296 pages | 5 MB

Intellectually rich, intensely personal, & beautifully written, Tracks & Shadows is both an absorbing autobiography of a celebrated field biologist & a celebration of beauty in nature. Harry W. Greene, award-winning author of Snakes: The Evolution of Mystery in Nature, delves into the poetry of field biology, showing how nature eases our existential qu&aries. More than a memoir, the book is about the wonder of snakes, the beauty of studying & underst&ing natural history, & the importance of sharing the love of nature with humanity.

Greene begins with his youthful curiosity about the natural world & moves to his stints as a mortician's assistant, ambulance driver, & army medic. In detailing his academic career, he describes how his work led him to believe that nature's most profound lessons lurk in hard-won details. He discusses the nuts & bolts of field research & teaching, contrasts the emotional impact of hot dry habitats with hot wet ones, imparts the basics of snake biology, & introduces the great explorers Charles Darwin & Alfred Russel Wallace. He reflects on friendship & happiness, tackles notions like anthropomorphism & wilderness, & argues that organisms remain the core of biology, science plays key roles in conservation, & natural history offers an enlightened form of contentment.
