Remains of a Rainbow: Rare Plants and Animals of Hawaii
Remains of a Rainbow: Rare Plants and Animals of Hawaii Book AUTHOR: Middleton, Liittschwager, et al
PUBLISHER: National Geographic
DATE PUBLISHED: October 1, 2003
DIMENSIONS: 12.0 x 10.9 x 0.7 inches
BINDING: Paperback
PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: Renowned natural history photographers David Liittschwager and Susan Middleton have devoted the last decade to capturing images of endangered plants and animals in the United States. Remains of a Rainbow, their groundbreaking and unprecedented coverage of the Hawaiian Islands, transforms these statistics into living beings with faces, unique characteristics, and beauty, through vivid and poignant photographic portraits. With more than 300 images, this splendidly vibrant volume will be showcased in traveling museum exhibitions over the next three years at major natural history venues. Remains of a Rainbow focuses on the native species that have evolved on the islands of Hawaii, one of the biologically richest places on Earth, and also one of the most threatened. Working closely with expert field biologists, Liittschwager and Middleton capture images of ecosystems full of new discoveries (species not yet known to science), rediscoveries (species thought to be extinct), and the exotic habitats in which these species fight to survive. The text and elegant photographs tell a powerful story - of the rare creatures of the world, of little-seen habitats in the wild, of human interference that threatens their survival, and of the people who devote their lives to preserving them.
