Gone Whaling - a search for Orcas in northwest waters, Hand, Douglas
31 Hand, Douglas Gone Whaling - a search for Orcas in northwest waters
New York Simon & Schuster 1994 0671768409 / 9780671768409 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Slightly Worn 
Small 8vo, pp 223, a very good clean copy in a very faintly worn dustwrapper. [Each year, thousands of people fascinated by the orcas intelligence, wildness and history, embark on whale-watching cruises hoping to catch a glimpse of one. To find out more about the appeal of these gentle giants - formerly known as killer whales - Douglas Hand travelled to the Pacific Northwest, whose waters the orcas call home. There he spent some time with the people who have been closest to the whales: marine biologist and orca census-taker Ken Balcolm, controversial researcher Paul Spong, and the indigenous people who appear to take the complexity of this great mammal for granted. Along the way, Hand describes in detail the orcas natural history, communication and behavioural patterns, and his own personal observations.]

Maliau Basin - Sabah's Lost World, HAZEBROEK, Hans P., Tengku Zainal Adlin & Waidi Sinun
37 HAZEBROEK, Hans P., Tengku Zainal Adlin & Waidi Sinun Maliau Basin - Sabah's Lost World
Kota Kinabalu 2004 9838120820 / 9789838120821 First Edition Pictorial laminated boards New New 
NEW. Very well illustrated, large 8vo, pp (22), 235, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [ The Maliau Basin, Sabah's Lost World celebrates the many natural wonders in one of the most captivating and mysteriously beautiful protected areas in the World. The Basin has a spectacular crater-like form with a mountainous rim and includes magnificent rain forests, wild rivers, splendid waterfalls and a cool highland plateau. These rain forests inspire awe by their immense richness in plant and animal life, and a sense of history spanning millions of years. Exceptionally rare, possibly even unique, plant communities occur in Maliau's montane forests. Although scientific exploration has only recently begun, Maliau's importance in terms of protecting a tremendous range of ecosystems with innumerable species of plants and animals, many of which are rare and endangered elsewhere, has already become evident. Through spectacular photographs and an excellent accompanying text, this beautiful and informative book fosters a deeper understanding of many of nature's splendid wonders. The book is an important guide to Maliau's plant and animal life, natural communities and geology and will greatly enhance the experience of both explorers-to-be and nature lovers at large.]
