What People Are Saying

Beverly Taft
From the moment the reader picks up Dr. LaBastille's latest work, s/he is captivated, intrigued, and more importantly, inspired. As she takes the reader from her cabin in the Adirondacks to the most remote regions of the Amazon, Dr. LaBastille brings to life, for everyone, the reality of and the urgency and need for enviornmental preservation.

Dr. LaBastille is a role model for women of all ages, inspiring them to take action in their own lives as well as responsibility for saving wildlife and wildlands.

John Davis
Jaguar Totem offers engaging, indeed enthralling, reading certainly. More importany, though, Anne LaBastille's most recent book offers insights and wisdom on the most pressing topic of our time: how to save wild Nature, the natural world, biological diversity. Anne LaBastille is a rare combination of rigourous scientist, gifted story-teller, and avid wildlife advocate-- in the venerable tradition of John Muir, Aldo Leopold, and Rachel Carson. (John Davis, Foundation for Deep Ecology, Program Officer, Biodiversity and Wilderness, San Francisco, CA.)

    A must read

    Anne LaBastille¿s ninth book, Jaguar Totem, was intended to convert readers into caring and compassionate conservationists. She succeeds admirably through clear, descriptive and fascinating prose that instantly transports readers to exotic, rare locales such as Guatemala, Anegada, and Brazil. Her stories bring readers into strange new worlds full of drama, tragedy, heroism, and suspense. Many readers know Anne LaBastille¿s Woodswoman, which details her Walden-like existence in the Adirondack Mountains. Jaguar Totem is a very different world, full of peoples with divergent agendas, with different animals, and with stunning new experiences. An example of the latter is the ¿miracle of horizontal precipitation¿ or sideways-blown water at Volcan Baru in Panama which adds as much as 20 inches to the annual moisture to downstream humans and animals who rely on it. An equally surprising example was found in the Dominican Republic. There, while tracking manatees, she was shown how manatees drink fresh water from underwater ¿boils.¿ Fresh water bubbles up from the sea floor some 20 to 40 feet from shore. Anne swam down and filled an empty bottle with fresh water from one of these ¿boils.¿ Her writings are informative, as when she notes that most of Amazonia is ¿literally a desert covered with trees.¿ Unlike soil in the U.S. midwest corn belt, nutrients in the tropical rain forest reside in the vegetation itself. It¿s the foliage that is fertile! Firsthand, LaBastille learns from the native peoples themselves that the overarching problem is population. As hard as LaBastille works to save parks, she was told, ¿Saving a park like Manu (in Peru) is like trying to cure cancer with an aspirin. As long as the world population increases, we¿ll have more and more trouble protecting bits of rain forest from people who need farmland or rangeland for food and fiber.¿ Updates to her stories tell readers what happened after LaBastille returned to the Adirondacks. The updates add the perspective of time and context, informing readers what they came to care about. The final page of ¿Afterthoughts¿ tells readers what they can do to save the natural resources and beauty of our earth. Most are unlikely to have the courage or capability to try to duplicate what she did, but can console themselves that they can do something, such as donating to conservation groups or putting up bluebird boxes. They should read LaBastille¿s books to learn what they missed!

    Superb tale of the travels and research of a leading ecologist

    I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone. I found myself savoring each sentence like a fine wine or a juicy steak out on a stump in front of one of my favorite author's cabins in the Adirondacks. This is one of Anne LaBastille's best works! Finely written, passionate, insightful, and full of interesting stories. The photographs were excellent, too. I'm so glad she wrote it. I've even referenced it in a couple of my environmental science texts as a great book to read to learn more about the plight of tropics and wildlife in general.
