Central America is a fascinating evolutionary artifact. Three million years ago, the Panama land bridge emerged as a link between what is now North and South America, and as flora and fauna traversed this great bridge between worlds, they cross-fertilized extensively and one of the Earth's most rich and varied environments developed. "The Monkey's Bridge" is the story of this extraordinary environment. The culmination of ten years of research and travel, the book combines a vibrant travelogue with personal insights on the landscapes, cultures, and ecosystems of Central America. David Rains Wallace creates an astounding portrait of a captivating part of the world.
From the Publisher:
"When the Panama land bridge between North and South America formed three million years ago, plants and animals surged back and forth in an evolutionary cross-fertilization creating one of the world's richest and most fascinating environments. This is the story of Central America's role as an evolutionary link between continents"--Provided by publisher.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The unique evolutionary story of the species-rich Central American land bridge is eloquently chronicled by Wallace." 08/01/1997

New York Times Book Review
"As a young man I walked from Colombia to Panama through the swamps of the Rio Atrato, the seemingly endless forests of the Darien, and along the spine of the isthmus that links the American continents, the point of departure for David Rains Wallace's splendid and densely informative book, "The Monkey's Bridge." - Wade Davis 10/26/1997

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"The book's structure traces the arc of recorded discovery in the region, starting with tales left by Conquistadores, Spanish governors and missionaries." - Charles Petit 01/04/1998
