"In this delightful book Carol Gould has brought to light something we may have forgotten: the intensive pursuit of natural history in the early part of the twentieth century. And there is no better way of telling the story than around the central and fascinating figure of William Beebe."--John Tyler Bonner "author of Lives of a Biologist "
"William Beebe's life and work form a vital link between the age of Wallace and Darwin and today's heroes of conservation. Carol Gould's magnificent biography vividly brings Beebe to life. His life should be an inspiration both to future conservation biologists and to anyone who started out collecting bugs in their own back yard."--Andrew P. Dobson "author of Conservation and Biodiversity "
"William Beebe was one of my boyhood heroes, who I followed through his articles in National Geographic Magazine. Now, thanks to the wonderful and thorough research of Carol Gould, I know the man behind those stories."--Dr. Robert D. Ballard "discoverer of the Titanic "
"Drawing on Crane's records, made available in 1989, and a host of other sources, Gould has written an engrossing account of Beebe's professional and personal life, effectively compressing his decades of hyperactivity into a mere 400 pages."--Natural History Magazine
