The authors encounter plenty of perilous situations, diverse characters, interesting food, all manner of lodging, stunning scenery, and of course the thrill of the hunt. Their story is written in an engaging, lively, descriptive manner that makes it hard to put down. It is also beautifully printed and illustrated with color photographs of exquisite plants, scenery, local color and people. Hardcover 312pp. Pub at $39.95
