With its gripping accounts of the author's travels, it covers a large variety of themes.
Although the book was originally meant for the small circle of people interested in poison tree-frogs (poison-dart frogs), it unexpectedly became a detailed report - directly from the rain forests - on the problems of environmental protection in the Andes countries, on the efforts of the law-makers in the fields of climate, nature, and species protection, and why these efforts will not result in effective protection.
And, finally, the 1950+ color photos make these three volumes a standard work, of historical significance.
These photographs, taken over a period of 30 years, show areas of primeval forest in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru, which now exist only in the author's memory.
