Book Details

We black creatures of Costa Rica have spirit, skill, and courage, whether we fish in mountain rivers full of rocks or hang by our tails from high branches of trees to play or eat. God created black as well as a rainbow of colors throughout the world. All beings have both virtues and flaws.

Las criaturas negras de Costa Rica tenemos espíritu, destreza, y valor, si pescamos en los ríos montañosos llenos de rocas o colgamos de las colas de los palos altos de los árboles para jugar o comer.Dios creó negro además del arco iris de colores por todo el mundo. Todos los seres tienen ambas virtudes y faltas.

 

About the Author

Carol Creager

What do I know about wildlife? I have watched and photographed it since I was a small child. I have visited most Spanish-speaking countries during my vacations from teaching Spanish. My first trip to Costa Rica was in 1970. My goals in life are to entertain as well as to educate others and to promote conservation. I want everyone to be able to see and to appreciate nature and wildlife; therefore, I write photographic books. Most books describe animals and birds. I want you to see what I see while I travel so that you can understand as much as possible how creatures live, what they eat, how they move, and what they do where they are visible. I tired of studying books talking about ecology and wildlife; I want you to see what each creature looks like and how they act. I chose Spanish-speaking countries for two reasons. First, I speak the language and have photographed everything I could for many years for my students to see as they learned the language. To communicate successfully with people of other countries, you need to understand their customs and culture as well as their language. Second, people are familiar with huge African and Asian animals. Unfortunately, little attention has been paid to the wealth of Latin American wildlife; I am trying to do my bit to help remedy the lack. While most of my books are written primarily for children, I hope adults too will enjoy the photographs and humor as well as learn more about the wildlife. Carol Creager
