Item description for My Tropic Isle by E. J. Banfield...
How quaint seems the demand for details of life on this Isle of Scent and Silence! Lolling in shade and quietude was I guilty of indiscretion when I babbled of my serene affairs and is the penalty so soon enforced?

Reviews - What do customers think about My Tropic Isle?
Sure to resonate with the hearts of nature lovers Jun 21, 2003
E. J. Banfield's My Tropic Isle presents the writings of an erudite individual in frail health, who had retired to a tropical island near Australia in 1895. An avowed disciple of Thoreau, Banfield personally observed and experienced the wonder and complexity in nature. This in turn, brought an enduring joy to his life, and motivated him to lobby the government to declare his beloved island (and others near it) as "Reserves for the Protection and Preservation of Native Birds." A thoughtful account sure to resonate with the hearts of nature lovers everywhere, My Tropic Isle is a welcome addition to the growing library of Nature Conservation literature.
