A great read, The true story of a Mid 20th century explorer from new England setting off and becoming shipwrecked on an island. Spending a number of years exploring the island alone with only slight contact with the other the inhabitants . Part travle journal, part zoological exploration. Surprisingly thoughtful concerning environmental and animal issues, the book is an interesting look at late 1930's naturalist thinking.

A thoroughly engrossing tale described (sometimes over described) in great detail. It's also an interesting look back at life on a small somewhat wild island during the decline between the two world wars.
This is an older book, but glad to see it in reprint series. Having spent time on Inagua it's an interesting read from another point in time -- and yet it all seems startlingly familiar. There are some dry spots where things bog down, but overall, it's a good portrayal of an adventure in a place that begs for nothing else!

Quite the unusual piece. Daring and brave story. I loved it.
Gilbert Klingel is the MAN!
Fascinating, and informative adventure, science and anthropology all in one!
Klingel discovered marine creatures and their habits seventy or more years before our TV specials of the 21st century. He is a man with an eye for tiny detail and wondrous observation. Let yourself be drawn into the world of island flora and fauna. What a trip!
Marvelous, historic, real life story for this part of the world (Southern Bahamas). Very detailed, some field note type writing, dive descriptions from the 1930s. I was fascinated!
