The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw: Nonfiction Eco-Thriller about Belize Out this Week

macaw.jpgNews flash: Macaw featured on the cover of this week’s New York Times Book Review!

I’ve been waiting four long years for the release of The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw: One Woman’s Fight to Save the World’s Most Beautiful Bird, ever since I met author Bruce Barcott in San Ignacio during one of his research trips to Belize. Bruce is a Seattle-based writer and Outside Editor-at-Large, and is in Colorado this week reading and signing his new book at the Boulder Bookstore on Wednesday and Denver’s Tattered Cover on Tuesday the 19th. I look forward to reading the book, which features a number of Belizean and expat characters, as Bruce tells the tale of the infamous Chalillo Dam and the Upper Macal River.
