Naturalist, Wilson, Edward O.


11 Wilson, Edward O. Naturalist
Island Press Washington DC 1994 1559632887 / 9781559632881 First - First edition Hardcover Very Good near fine Hardcover 
First printing. Brown cloth boards with gilt lettering on front and spine. Front cover slightly bowed and hinges a little loose, but not overly. No marks or soiling to interior. Dust jacket in near fine condition with only light edge wear to top edge. "Edward O. Wilson - University Professor at Harvard, winner of two Pulitzer prizes, eloquent champion of biodiversity - is arguably one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century. His career represents both a blueprint and a challenge to those who seek to explore the frontiers of scientific understanding. Yet, until now, little has been told of his life and of the important events that have shaped his thought. In Naturalist, Wilson describes for the first time both his growth as a scientist and the evolution of the science he has helped define. He traces the trajectory of his life - from a childhood spent exploring the Gulf Coast of Alabama and Florida to life as a tenured professor at Harvard - detailing how his youthful fascination with nature blossomed into a lifelong calling. He recounts with drama and wit the adventures of his days as a student at the University of Alabama and his four decades at Harvard University, where he has achieved renown as both teacher and researcher."
