    schema:description ""Over the course of two decades, field biologist Mark Rauzon visited nine of the ten islands. In Isles of Refuge, the first book solely devoted to the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, Rauzon shares his extensive, first-hand knowledge of their natural history while providing an engaging narrative of his travels. Braving seasickness, bad weather, and biting bird ticks, he journeyed from Nihoa to Kure to study and photograph plants and animals for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service: rare palms, sharks, turtles, seals, and thousands of birds - finches, terns, petrels, noddies, shearwaters, curlews, boobies, tropic-birds, ducks, and albatrosses, or "gooneys," famed throughout the Pacific for their flying prowess and bizarre breeding rituals."--Jacket."@en ;
