— “When I got on Tiger Blue the first time, I felt the warmth of its wood, and imagined all the incredible places it could take us,” says the writer, who retraced Alfred Russel Wallace’s last Indonesian journey. “I’d read Wallace’s passages on Waigeo, Ternate, and birds-of-paradise. His writing style isn’t scientific; it’s like reading a novel.” In the under-discovered, partly uncharted region, the ship’s co-owner was a perfect guide: “Rebecca Duckett-Wilkinson made such an effort to share her passion for Wallace’s history and her love for the Spice Islands. I was learning new things every day.” Twitter: @monkeyrockworld.
