Strange Encounters : An internationally renowned scientist, Daniel B. Botkin has lived the kind of life that other people only dream about. He has studied whales and elephants, tramped over high mountain passes and through rain forests, worked with NASA, and walked in the footsteps of Henry David Thoreau and Lewis and Clarke. Strange Encounters is Botkin's warm, witty account of his adventures spanning thirty years and dozens of countries, infused with insights and observations on how people and the institutions they build interact with the natural world. In this delightful narrative, Botkin does for the science of the natural world what Oliver Sacks has done for the science of human behavior: he enlightens while he entertains.
