Wandering in Costa Rica evokes the rainforest: brilliant butterflies and twisting lianas, poison dart frogs and tropical quetzals, fearsome snakes and opulent orchids. And it introduces Ticos: determined farmers, a menacing outlaw, kindly caregivers, a machete-wielding jungle guide, and a Monkey Whisperer, to name a few. The intimate voices and tapestry-like interplay of characters and locations in this anthology make it read like an old friend’s diary; you feel, somehow, as though you were there in the place it was written.
From calypso grooves to cocoa groves, this anthology of 21 stories delights the reader as it evokes Costa Rican culture and wildlife. Available in paperback and ebook formats.
