Audiobook Summary:

The best-selling writer of Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks is well known as an explorer of the human mind - a neurologist with a present for intricate, insightful descriptions of folks and their states. However, he's also a card-carrying member of the American Fern Society, and since youth was fascinated by these archaic plants and their capacity to endure and adjust in several climates.

Oaxaca Journal is Sacks' spell-binding accounts of his excursion with a group of fellow fern enthusiasts to the beautiful, background-steeped province of Oaxaca, Mexico. Bringing together Sacks's passion for normal history as well as the richness of human culture along with his sharp eye for detail, Oaxaca Journal is a fascinating evocation of a location, its plants, its people, and its myriad miracles.
