My piece about the El Yunque rainforest, Bird fights in Puerto Rico, gets cover billing and a nice layout in the current issue of Garden & Gun: 21st Century Southern America (March/April 2008). Photography is by Peter Frank Edwards. We did research for this one last summer, staying in Old San Juan for the first few nights, then renting a Jeep Liberty and going as far up a narrow road on the South side of El Yunque as we could, past roadside bars and roaming chicken flocks to stay in the cinder block-built, aqua green-painted Casa Cubuy that juts out from the mountainside, surrounded by the jungle and ginger flowers. I hope to get back there this year.
