@Oootini been just once but it was over two weeks with @instantjuggler over the entire island. a truly magical place.
@HateNames yes! a wonderful book. and for some reason i was surprised that herzog would call it one of his favorites-- but perhaps i don't know my herzog well enough.
on the naturalist book suggestions-- the current book club title (rings of saturn) has some great nature passages amongst the also spectacular historical explorations. also some favorites are edward abbey (desert solitude) and snow leapord (peter matthiessen)
