“Lizard Tales, People and Events in the Life of a Naturalist” consists of stories that I told in my ecology, evolution, ornithology, herpetology, natural history, and general biology classes or around campfires, and includes many that have never been told to anyone until now. The book is autobiographical and geographic: Chicago, Hollywood, San Diego, UCLA, Cal. Tech., New York, Arizona and also Australia, Mexico, and Central America. The stories are about animals, fieldwork, people, and weird or exciting events. Because I have met and interacted with many people, there are personal stories about Debbie Reynolds, Natalie Wood, John Steinbeck, Margaret Meade, Cellist Gregory Piatagorsky, Charles Richter (Earthquake Scale), U.S. Grant IV, The Emperor of Japan, and artist Charles Russell! Some of the fun stories include: Playing badminton with the world’s champion, Cobras getting loose at UCLA, Nobel Laureates in my class, How I invented the stent, Origin of the first elephant race in human history, Why salamanders helped Custer lose the Battle of Little Big Horn, The girl that peed with rattlesnakes, Sliding off the side of a whale, Drinking beer with the Emperor of Japan, Can lizards predict earthquakes, Three gringos and a dead horse (Costa Rica), and Attempted murder using a rattlesnake.

Explanation of the Book:

Other than black and white TV, the baby boomer boys growing up in the little oak hammock east of South Floridas everglades dont have much to entertain them. Personal computers and the Internet are still decades away. Organized youth sports are all but non-existent in their environs. Rock and roll is king but exists only on an AM radio station and a stack of black vinyl disks. So how does a brotherhood of youngsters come of age while manufacturing adventure from an otherwise uneventful existence in the early 60s? How do they spend their summers when girls are still mysterious, undiscovered creatures and the bicycle is the only mode of transportation? And how do they face lifes unanswered questions while anticipating their once-in-a-lifetime trip to the New York Worlds Fair? Tales from the Oak Hammock chronicles the amusing answers to these questions as it recounts the misadventuresand misdemeanorsof boys who sometimes catch a glimpse of lifes meaningbut more often merely observe its puzzling complexities. They are the first generation raised by TV so they surely dont have all the answersbut this one thing they know: Life isnt always fair, but its almost always in black and white!
