Quest for the Tree Kangaroo: An Expedition to the Cloud Forest of New Guinea
by Sy Montgomery, photographs by Nic Bishop
Houghton Mifflin (2009 reprint), $8.99
The author and photographer accompanied scientist Lisa Dabek and her team on a trek through the remote forests of Papua New Guinea in search of the elusive Matschie's tree kangaroo. Little is known about this animal that looks like a bear, has a pocket like a kangaroo, and lives in trees. The book is filled with wonderful photographs of tree kangaroos, their lush habitat, and other exotic plants and animals. Background information on Dabek — whose family and friends found her interest in animals strange when she was growing up and who overcame asthma — may be of special interest to aspiring naturalists and biologists.
