In Kate Jackson ventured into the remote swamp forests of the northern Congo to collect reptiles and amphibians. Her camping equipment was rudimentary, her knowledge of Congolese customs even more so. She knew how to string a net and set a pitfall trap, but she never imagined the physical and cultural difficulties that awaited her.
Culled from the mud-spattered pages of her journals, Mean and Lowly Things reads like a fast-paced adventure story. When the snakes evaded her carefully set traps, Jackson enlisted people from the villages to bring her specimens. She trained her guide to tag frogs and skinks and to fix them in formalin.

We're with her as she battles loneliness, parasites, and uncertainties and adapts to a foreign culture. And we share her personal highs and the swamp forest's allure. Bravo to this intrepid herpetologist! Marty Crump, author of Headless Males Make Great Lovers and Other Unusual Natural Histories This is what exploratory natural history in a remote place, embedded in a very different culture, is really like--frustrating, confusing, scary, and fraught with prospects for failure.

Jackson tells the truth even when it doesn't necessarily reflect well on her, and did I mention she's a small woman working in places where, I'm not kidding, most male herpetologists wouldn't dare to go? Mean and Lowly Things is genuine adventure, without the swashbuckling! Harry W. Greene, Cornell University Professor and author of Snakes: The Evolution of Mystery in Nature It is always exciting to read about remote, natural places in the world and even more so when the story is told by a field researcher. In the tradition of Jane Goodall Jackson has written a fascinating, adventure-filled memoir, describing how her love of snakes led her to become a herpetologist.
Drawing from her journal entries, Jackson takes us through the planning, permits, and travel, as well as her actual time in the field catching animals.
Jackson learns to work with her native field staff during her two collecting trips and shows appreciation for all the local people she meets and employs. Margaret Henderson Library Journal Herpetologist Jackson is candid, funny, and precise as she chronicles her demanding and illuminating experiences collecting snakes, frogs, and toads in the flooded forests of the Congo Sharply observant, considerate, and rough, Jackson is immensely entertaining in her exuberantly detailed descriptions of swarms of termites, ants, and mosquitoes; unpalatable food; and painfully rugged campsites.
Add to that nearly surreal negotiations with officials, confounding relationships with guides and assistants, medical misadventures, and moments ludicrous and dramatic as she chases down poisonous snakes, handles animal remains, and snuggles to preserve and identify priceless specimens and forge cross-cultural scientific partnerships.
Jackson is a dynamo, and her riveting, amusing, and revealing tales from the biodiversity front line awaken fresh appreciation for hands-on scientific inquiry and the wonders of nature.

Donna Seaman Booklist In our age of Google Maps, it's comforting to learn that snakes few places remain relatively impenetrable to the outside world. Nowhere videos this more true than the Congo, which has long held a fascination for explorers and scientists and continues to guard its secrets Descriptions of wet invasions, maggots under the skin, sleepless nights, bad food and even the odd venomous snake bite all keep the pages turning.
Against the odds, Incredible titties test efforts in the Congo eventually pay off--not only does she discover a new species, she also finds romance.
This intriguing blend of science and human interest, related in a matter-of-fact style, brings to life a little-known part of the world. It is also an exciting adventure story for those who would rather avoid the ants, termites, wasps, and the fly maggots that burrow into the biologists' skin and grow larger there.
Gustafson Choice Fieldwork is very important but unsung. Jackson deserves respect for her drive, ability to organize and manage wet fieldwork alone, train local students, and to learn the local language without losing sight of the scientific aims She is refreshingly honest about the failures, mistakes and difficulties of her fieldwork as well as the successes Mean and Lowly Things is full of incident and cultural as well as scientific insight that should carry non-scientific readers right to the end.

Gower Times Literary Supplement As milf snuff phone sex travel book, Kate Jackson's account of snake collecting in the tropics is both humorous and dramatic As an account of biological fieldwork under trying conditions, however, Jackson's book is both elegant and appealing There are probably only a few specialists who can fully appreciate the professional journal articles on the biodiversity of tumblr naked anal hole Congo forest that resulted from Jackson's expeditions.
But we can all hope that she will continue writing, and that we won't have to wait too long for the next installment of Kate Jackson's Snakes Adventureswherever they may lead. Laurence A.
