About the author (1994)

Jonathan Evan Maslow's works, both fiction and nonfiction, explore the beauty of nature and the effects of modern man on it. "Bird of Life, Bird of Death," for example, details two adventurers' search for a rare Guatemalan bird. They do not find the bird, but become increasing aware of, and outraged by, the effects that local politics have had on the people and the ecology.
