F953 Fall 2018 Fall for the Book, Traveling Wild: Tales of an Ecotourist
Thursday, 11:50–1:15, Oct. 11
Tallwood
Instructor: Mike Gunter
A veteran traveler with ecotourism experience on all seven continents, Mike Gunter Jr. is the author of Tales of an Ecotourist: What Travel to Wild Places Can Teach Us About Climate Change. The book showcases travel—from the hot and humid Amazon jungle to the frozen but dry Antarctic—as a simple yet spellbinding lens to better understand the complex issue of climate change. Using both keen humor and memorable anecdotes, while weaving in respected scientific studies, the work highlights five famous eco-destinations and fleshes out much-needed personal context to perhaps society’s greatest threat of all.
