1921. William Beebe was one of this century's leading pioneers into the oceanic world. The Brooklyn, New York, native possessed an unrelenting curiosity about the natural world around, and beneath, him. Through his dozens of books describing his various expeditions, Beebe brought the average citizen in closer touch with the natural world. Beebe turned his focus away from pheasants to the tropical jungle and became director of the Zoological Park's new Department of Tropical Research. This is his second series of essays, following those in Jungle Peace. Contents: The Lure of Kartabo; A Jungle Clearing; The Home Town of the Army Ants; A Jungle Beach; A Bit of Uselessness; Guinevere the Mysterious; A Jungle Labor Union; The Attas at Home; Hammock Nights; A Tropic Garden; The Bay of Butterflies; and Sequels.
