The best-selling author of "Awakenings" and "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, " Oliver Sacks is well know as an explorer of the human mind--a neurologist with a gift for complex, insightful portrayals of people and their conditions. However, he is also a card-carrying member of the American Fern Society, and since childhood has been fascinated by these primitive plants and their ability to survive and adapt in many climates.
"Oaxaca Journal" is Sacks's spellbinding account of his trip with a group of fellow fern enthusiasts to the beautiful, history-steeped province of Oaxaca, Mexico. Bringing together Sacks's passion for natural history and the richness of human culture with his sharp eye for detail, "Oaxaca Journal" is a captivating evocation of a place, its plants, its people, and its myriad wonders.
