Paul Rosolie, Paul Rosolie Sustainability

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

There is society where none intrudes,

By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:

I love not Man the less, but Nature more,

From these our interviews, in which

I steal From all I may be, or have been before,

To mingle with the Universe, and feel

What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.

    Hi,
    My students thoroughly enjoyed your presentation at the Darien Library last evening, and I look forward to reading your book – which they bought for me.

    Would you be interested in coming to speak here at DHS on Earth Day which is April 22? We might be able to provide a modest honorarium.

    Looking forward to your reply,
    Elissa Johnson

  5. Paul,
    I just had to add my name to the list of people who really enjoyed your book. I had a similar story about early education. I write novels of the ancient Maya, so the Peten is my jungle of choice. Your descriptions are masterful prose. You inspired me.

    Outstanding work! And so needed considering the crises of the world jungles and their awesome diversity.

    I just finished “Mother of God”. It is one of the most accurate depictions of jungle life I’ve read. I have spent many hours exploring the jungles of Samoa, Panama, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and many jungles in the US. You have viscerally captured the combination of awe and fear that would alternatively threaten to overwhelm me every time I ventured alone into those places. The jungles of the world must be protected if for no other reason than to allow future generations to experience those feelings. I’m sure there are some people so cold blooded, greedy and callus that no emotional appeal will sway them. But there are others in authority for who your book will provide the spark of enlightenment and hopefully will tilt them into action. Sincere thanks from a fellow jungle junky.

    A great book. Just read a Dutch copy in one day. But during and afterwards it makes me sad because you wrote the same words others before also did. Humans are very capable to destroy their only home: Earth.

    We al know it, but when will it stop?

    When you met those men on your solo trip it was like two worlds almost collide but which one is the right one? Those men who might be kill you or you who could be a danger for those men? For me this was the best part of your book. Two worlds so close and so far away from each other. One world who will just live peacefully in their jungle and the other world who represents destruction.

    Paul:
    I just finished your book. Never before have I been so in love with a book as to read all the way to the very last end page and wish for more. Your book is outstanding and engrossing. Thank you and thank you for all you are doing with your team.

    I wish I could express how very, very much I enjoyed your book, from all the encounters with the animals of the wild, to the sweet gentleness with which your discovery of the peoples and habitat you came to love, was alive on all the pages of your wonderful book.
    Because of you, I am in love with Madre de Dios.

    We read to escape the ordinary of our every day. Wow, this is so far from any day I’ve ever experienced and so much better than fiction. I kept reaching for this book at every opportunity. Mesmerizing and educating.

    All of your books should be boycotted. You have lost all credibility after participating in the Discovery channel show covered in pig’s blood
    Being eaten alive by a snake. I have signed the petition to stop the airing of this show. Animal cruelty and disgusting behavior.

      You are so right. Paul totally messed up by doing this stunt. I used to think he would be one of the great naturalists, but now that he was willing to do this stunt? No more. He is a hooligan with access to knowledge and wild places.

      November 20, 2014 at 4:19 pm

  15. AL

    You disgust me, you pathetic, money grubbing bastard! I hope the snake kills your sorry, stupid ass! Shame on you and shame on the Discovery Channel for airing such unmitigated GARBAGE! It’s only fitting you cover yourself in pig’s blood -YOU ARE ONE!

    • dee

      You claim to be all about nature, but what you are is a pathetic attention seeking idiot who DAMAGES nature. I have signed the petition against your disgusting show, and will NEVER watch discovery again.As for The Discovery Channel..good move to seriously piss off animal lovers the world over. Tossers.

      November 9, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    • terry

      so what happens then? do you know?

      November 10, 2014 at 4:40 pm

  16. Craig

    I have no respect for you man, since you clearly have no respect for nature.

    The ‘being eaten alive’ stunt was just an appalling publicity attempt. That snake survived but it could very easily have been killed, all for your poncy little TV show. You are vile.

    It would only have been an interesting event if you had been killed doing it, pity you didn’t though.

    November 7, 2014 at 8:03 am

  17. Cris

    Nice job deleting all the negative comments about the new discovery channel segment. Hurting a defenceless animal for the sake of ratings. I bet this comment will be gone soon as well. Maybe I should write about how much I love your book but that would be lying.

    November 7, 2014 at 1:27 pm

  18. Richard Taranto

    I just finished your book which I thought was great. Then I saw the hideous publicity event you are doing for the Discovery Channel. Any respect I had for you and your accomplishments has vanished. As one with an apparent love and respect for snakes, what are you trying to prove? Shame on you.

  19. saeed from iran

    It is actually terribly corroded.
    I hope Luck

    Mother of God is engaging and captivates you from the first page to the last. I couldn’t put the book down each time I picked it up! The book finished much sooner than I wanted it to.

    Paul Rosolie has done amazing work! His book is a must read for everyone out there!

    I hope his show #EatenAlive will give him the platform to do even greater work and help conserve the forest we have left on earth!

  21. Davie VdB

    I’ve been following the ads for eaten alive, and was horrified. Now I’ve been reading more into it and picked up the book today and can’t put it down. I think the commercials are area good way to promote this book any get people aware of the real issue which isn’t a man eating a snake, because that doesn’t happen, but about the beautiful Amazon and how we’re losing such a beautiful part of the planet. That is what this book and the show is about.

    Thanks Paul. Great book

    November 16, 2014 at 11:27 pm

  22. West Derwin

    Hey Paul…How did the snake get it’s mouth open wide enough to accommodate your nose? What…too soon?? Too mean??? Hey…someone has to stick up for the snake! You did such a nice job with your book but then blew your credibility with this stupid stunt? You’re an arrogant idiot. To hell with you and the Discover Channel.
