Résumé
"A magnificent illustrated testimony to Costa Rica's fragile beauty." This exquisite book of photographs, brilliant in color and enchanting in subject, takes readers on a personal journey through the jeweled treasure that is Costa Rica. Images of spacious beaches, muddy river banks, crystal clear waterfalls, and lush jungles adorned with tropical blooms and prehistoric plants will stay in the reader's mind for a long time to come. Costa Rica is organized by region -- the Central Divide, Guanacaste, the Central Pacific, the Osa Peninsula, the North Caribbean, the South Caribbean -- and closes with a discussion on conservation and responsible tourism. Like an informed tour guide, the extended captions provide interesting facts and valuable context, much of it from the perspective of the author/photographer. Highlights on the journey include: Arenal, one of the world's most active volcanoes, in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Preserve Tortuguero National Park, where a lone jaguarstalks a sea turtle struggling to reach safety Giant tree ferns -- evolutionary relics that predate flowering plants Blood-scarlet passion flowers emerging through leaf litter A partially submerged crocodile, its riveting stare fixed on the photographer Poison arrow frogs, vividly painted in deadly blues, greens, reds, spots, stripes and ragged patterns. Overflowing with brilliant page-filling photographs and informative text, this book is as close as one can get to Costa Rica without a passport.
