Item description for The Great Tamaulipan Natural Province by Patricio Robles Gil, Exequiel Ezcurra, Eduardo Peters, Eugenia Pallares & Ana Ezcurra...
The Tamaulipan Province stretches 55,000 square miles along the Tropic of Cancer, from the northernmost Mexican states of Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipus, San Luis Potos, and Veracruz all the way to southwest Texas. Home to such varied species as the ocelot and the prairie dog, as well as rare birds like the green-cheeked amazon and the crimson-collared grosbeak, it is one of the most diverse regions in North America---and one of the most threatened.
The exquisite result of a partnership among Mexican non-governmental organizations, Agrupacin Sierra Madre, and the Tamaulipus state government of Mexico, The Great Tamaulipan Natural Province explores this natural paradise and captures its incredible geographical diversity---lagoons, plains, deserts and mountains---through the lens of a camera. Each photograph argues powerfully and persuasively for the preservation of this unique and beautiful environment. A superb contribution to the study of North American wildlife, The Great Tamaulipan Natural Province is a must-read for scientists, environmentalists, policymakers, and anyone concerned about our rapidly diminishing natural world.

Beautiful Book May 3, 2009
The book is stunning, and a meditation about the beauty of nature. The passion of the Mexican biologists, photographers, ecologists, and educators is very evident. It is one of the most beautiful books I have seen, lately.
