  • Library Journal Reviews : LJ Reviews 1986 October #1
    Deep sea submersibles and space probes have opened the ocean depths and near-earth space to exploration, but the canopy of tropical rainforest remains largely unexplored. Kingdom of the Sky is both a personal account of Perry's adventures in forest canopy and his perspective on the evolution of canopy organisms. His enthusiasm is clear, for he creates vivid images. Unfortunately, he lapses into uninspired prose characterized by a flair for the overdramatic (as when he refers to the ``gloomy, depressing, oppressive forest undergrowth'') and occasionally makes technical errors (King Vulture is not nearing extinction). Even with these reservations, this book remains the best available study of forest canopy. BOMC alternate. James R.
