This American author has spent thirty years in the rainforests of Costa Rica documenting the challenges and triumphs of his attempts to make an environmentally conscious sustainable living in this paradise. Jon Maranon offers a unique first-person account of nature and persons in conflict and the difficulties of meshing human existence into the once pristine rainforests of Costa Rica. His work promotes reader awareness of the natural environment, wildlife, ecosystems, and socioculture of this remote area of Costa Rica. Ecology and spirituality intertwine as he describes his journey in a mix of naturalist and lyrical prose that, along with humor and introspection, mark the style of The Gringo’s Hawk.
