SIGNED hardcover first edition - A book which describes, with humor and sometimes dismay, Alexander's visits to six rain forests in different areas of the world, including Malaysia, Alaska, Guatemala, and the Amazon region. As the Booklist review noted his "childhood images of the fantasy jungles of Tarzan and Jungle Jim vanish when he journeys to several rain forests and encounters such realities as Brazilian troops stationed in the Amazon to prevent First World internationalization of the rain forest; fundamentalists in a rain forest village in Malaysia seeking the resettlement and religious conversion of animistic Aboriginal natives; luxury hotel chains, Reeboks, and racism on Dominica, home to one of the last oceanic rain forests; and the vague menace of guerrilla insurgents in Guatemala.

SIGNED on the title page with the words "Best wishes." Illustrated with full color photographs. 201 pp. ISBN: 1-558213996.
