New book "For the Love of Wild Places: Finding Adventure and Beauty in Nature" (Brown Books Publishing Group) by Greg and Mary Beth Dimijian invites readers to explore the natural wonders of our planet while also imparting the necessity of wildlife conservation. Prepare to be mesmerized and let the adventure begin.
"There are no better tour guides than these two naturalists," says Dr. James B. Murphy, Curator of Herpetology at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington, DC.
Gifted storytellers and world-class photographers whose photographs have appeared in "National Geographic," "Time," and "The New York Times," the Dimijians take readers deep into the fragile country of the plant, inspiring them with a motivation for exploring and a renewed vigor for saving the remaining wonders of the planet.
For four decades, Greg and Mary Beth Dimijian ventured into the back country of Earth by land, sea and air to photograph and savor the adventures shared in this book.
"For the Love of Wild Places" is filled with detailed information about some of the wildest habitats around the globe. From an intimate view of a cheetah's care of her six cubs in Africa to a carpet of Emperor Penguins in Antarctica to the landing of 25,000 turtles on an isolated Costa Rican beach, this personal narrative captures the wonder, beauty and fragility of vanishing wild places.
"Underneath the fascinating natural history and engaging stories, there is an urgent message to all of us," says Sean B. Carroll, PhD. "Go now and see these wonders and the creatures that inhabit them while they still remain."
"The title says it all," says Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE. "All who go on this adventure will understand."
