Wonderful explanation of species diversity June 30 2008
By J. S. Pompy - Published on
Format: Paperback
Authors clearly have a wonderful understanding of the science that explains continent formation, species dispersion, and Vietnam's diverse environment. Recommended read for any naturalist or scientist who plans to visit Vietnam and wants a quick but accurate overview that explains the origins of Vietnam's environment as it exists today. Read it! You will understand what you see! I have visited Vietnam 12 times and have been everywhere north to south, but I learned more of the country's origins from reading this book than in all my wonderful adventures. My thanks to the authors for the love of Vietnam reflected in this book.
Thorough Investigation of Wildlife of Vietnam Dec 16 2012
By 'The Invisible Man' - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When people (especially Americans) hear 'Vietnam', images of the Vietnam War- images of horror, destruction, &grief flood their mind(if one is old enough to remember & care).
This superb Natural History of this country, carpet bombed; still reaking of cordite, napalm,
and 'Angent Orange', goes where none have gone before to set out catalouging the richness
of flaura and fauna that somehow survived thirty plus years of war and a population explosion. (Before it all disappears forever).
This is not some 'dry' academic treatise, but instead an extremely readable inventory of Vietnamese wildlife before it's gone......
Highly recommended......

Disappointed Oct. 25 2008
By Walter Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While this book gives a good deal of information on the reginal animal and plant life, it is lacking the human history. How did this country come to be?
