9780792242086: Oaxaca Journal (National Geographic Directions)

The best-selling author of Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks is well know as an explorer of the human mind—a neurologist with a gift for complex, insightful portrayals of people and their conditions. However, he is also a card-carrying member of the American Fern Society, and since childhood has been fascinated by these primitive plants and their ability to survive and adapt in many climates.

Oaxaca Journal is Sacks's spellbinding account of his trip with a group of fellow fern enthusiasts to the beautiful, history-steeped province of Oaxaca, Mexico. Bringing together Sacks's passion for natural history and the richness of human culture with his sharp eye for detail, Oaxaca Journal is a captivating evocation of a place, its plants, its people, and its myriad wonders.

About the Author:

As a physician and a writer, Oliver Sacks is concerned above all with the link between body and mind, and the ways in which the whole person adapts to different neurological conditions.

Oliver Sacks was born in London, England (both of his parents were physicians) and he obtained his medical degree at Oxford. In the early 1960's, he moved to the United States, where he completed an internship at UCSF and a residency in neurology at UCLA. Since 1965, he has lived in New York, where he is clinical professor of neurology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, adjunct professor of neurology at the NYU School of Medicine and consultant neurologist to the Little Sisters of the Poor and at Beth Abraham Hospital

Dr. Sacks is perhaps best known for his best-selling 1985 collection of case histories from the far borderlands of neurological experience, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, and for his 1973 book Awakenings, which later inspired a play by Harold Pinter, A Kind of Alaska, and the Oscar-nominated Hollywood movie. In 1989, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship for his work on Tourette's syndrome, a condition marked by involuntary tics and utterances.
