Ambushes, snake-bitten, nearly drowning in a river, stuck in quicksand, left to die on an uninhabited island were all in a day's work for me, a young man who grew up dreaming of adventure. My roots and 1950s upbringing are in rural Davie, in tropical South Florida. My father's stories of the South Pacific islands during WWII, and books with the exploits of explorers and animal collectors, fed my imagination and fueled my desire to travel. Following my dreams, I enter the animal business, and set out to explore the beautiful, disappearing worlds of the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America, and capture deadly pit vipers, giant poisonous frogs, land iguanas and boas. Without a college degree, I get my advanced education the hard way: in the wilderness. I learn about life, happiness, grit, survival, success, and new directions along the way. Experience the thrill of discovery and danger on countless amazing, adrenaline-fueled adventures, as I travel-often alone-to deserts, uninhabited islands, and steamy jungles. Action packed, with travels to exotic lands, interesting characters, danger, beauty, history, and incredible animals. Koul v - Book One includes 140 photos, clippings, tables, maps, and references. 440 pages, with annotated table of contents, glossary, scientific name tables, and detailed index. Book Two has 472 pages, 229 phots and maps, and continues with more adventures in new lands with new people. Lovers of travel to Florida, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America will appreciate the stories of the land, people, history, and wildlife in a recently past era. For fans of true-life adventure, the trials, tribulations, and dangers of seat-of-my-pants, solo travel, dealing with the unexpected with only grit and determination, being saved by angels too often to be just chance, will keep you hooked. Lovers of wildlife, especially reptiles, and the wild places where they live, will find hundreds of species mentioned in the text. Herpetologists, especially, will enjoy a nostalgic, factual look back at "how it was" in the wild world of herping in the 1960s and early '70s.
