In an almost magical way, Bruce Means’ newest book, Basecamp in the Tropics, will transport you through the steamy tropical rainforests of South America to the great tepuis, the highest mesas in the world also known as sky islands. Along the way you will sense discovery, joy, and excitement but also disappointment and hardship. Many new species of animals are found, including numerous species of amphibians and reptiles. To Bruce, it is his Shangri-La. The foreword author, Alex Honnold, an Academy Award-winning rock climber (“Free Solo”), writes, “I learned more about nature by trekking through the jungle with Bruce than I have from any other trip that I’ve taken or class I’ve attended. I’m very grateful that he has chosen to share his extensive knowledge and experiences in this book.”
