Even though my new book is distributed by a top national distributor, few books ever become successful without author help. Consequently, I have been working hard acquiring both individual and national reviews. Today my first national review came in—and it’s a good one! Midwest Book Review specializes in the all-important library market and receives over 2,000 book review requests a month. Endangered Edens was selected for this month’s issue, and the review couldn’t be better:
Synopsis: Whether traveling with Marty Essen and his wife, Deb, in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico, or going solo with Marty in the Everglades, readers will experience nature’s vulnerable wildlife and wilderness areas in a way few others have — all while laughing and learning along the way. In addition to Marty’s entertaining stories, “Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico” also features more than 180 stunning color pictures in a merging of the genres of wildlife photography, adventure travelogues, and environmental education into one unforgettable volume.
Critique: The sequel to Marty Essen’s “Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents” (Encante Press, 9780977859979, $24.95 PB, $7.99 Kindle), “Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico” is impressively informative and a lot of fun. Ideal for the armchair traveler and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to community library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that “Endangered Edens” is also available in a Kindle edition ($7.99).
