This is a disjointed compendium of unrelated and outdated essays. It’s essentially Quammen going through his files and trying to make a few bucks off his old stuff.

I don’t blame Quammen for this by any means. The essays were all new to me, and Quammen’s warmed-over repeats are better than most writers’ latest and greatest. However, I couldn’t help but feel that the essays lose something by being collected here, all in one place, with nothing to hold them together.
