Orchids

Found this on a coffee table and made time to give it a quick read. Interesting for the info on Nica orchids but also for the adventure stories of the author tramping around in the boonies by mule and canoe. Hint:bring binoculars because orchids generally need filtered sun, which puts them near the top of the tree canopies.

Want a copy? Good luck, initial printing was a few hundred copies. Nic. is not a center for nature publications like CR. Business opportunity for someone, but be advised the the market is small because most Nicas lack the money for books.

Incidentally, recently made it to the Hispamer bookstore on a side street near UCA managua(Univ. of Central America). Not much on nature but well stocked on other titles, with a very few in English.
