    In Patagonia Sliced Iguana book, by Bruce Chatwin When Bruce Chatwin died inat 48, he had published just five books: a small yet dazzling output. It makes you smile when people connect with animals, and this book captures it in the best way!

At the same time, when I risk a scan of reader reviews here on Goodreads and find casual dismissals of a very fine book, I get pissed off.

    Sliced Iguana makes an intriguing introduction to the world of the indigenous people of Mexico. Here she stayed for some time and got involved in Sliced Iguana book community's activities, making tortillas, preparing meals and taking part in their rituals, even to the extent of getting high on peyote. Wonderfully successful. I tell you, it was a bucket of shit…. I am not aware if the source of the title was ever uncovered. Knepp is a vitally important experiment for working out what we can do to let Nature back in to our farmed landscapes

    By the end of her story, I was ready to book my plane ticket. He lives in Ohio with his wife, Deborah. School Library Journal. For her guest-blog post here, I've asked her for her five favorite books about Mexico. This low level of parental intervention with their offspring makes iguanas an example of r-strategy reproduction.
