About the Author:

Dale Peterson spent years researching the primates and the ecology of forests before setting out around the world for The Deluge and the Ark. His previous books have been about art, education and pyschology.

From Library Journal:

This combines unusual travelogue and observations of Third World culture with an analysis of global patterns of supply and demand for wildlife and the forest products harvested (sometimes destructively) from their habitat. Peterson poses some challenging questions: What is worth more, farmland for famished people in overpopulated developing nations or virgin forest habitat for black-and-white colobus monkeys? Strict enforcement of international import/export restrictions on endangered primates or a steady supply of rhesus macaques critical to production of polio vaccines? While some of Peterson's facts are a tad outdated (for example, he criticizes outmoded conditions at the Atlanta Zoo, which since June 1988 have been dramatically improved), his concluding passage is a persuasive piece of prose calling on average citizens to act now, in many small ways, to stem the tide of species and habitat destruction.-- Laurie Tynan, Montgomery Cty.
