The Gringo’s Hawk

Kenneth Group Publishing is proud to bring you Jon Marañón’s The Gringo’s Hawk.

This American author has spent 30 years in the rainforests of Costa Rica documenting the challenges and triumphs of his attempts to make an environmentally-conscious sustainable living in this paradise. Jon Marañón offers a unique first person account of nature and persons in conflict and the difficulties of meshing human existence into the once pristine rain forests of Costa Rica.

Mr. Marañón’s work promotes reader awareness of the natural environment, wildlife, ecosystems, and socio-culture of this remote area of Costa Rica. Ecology and spirituality intertwine as he describes his journey in a mix of naturalist and lyrical prose that, along with humor and introspection, mark the style of The Gringo’s Hawk.

The Gringo’s Hawk represents the culmination of Mr. Marañón’s social struggles and the roles he has played in marine biology conservation and in establishing national parks and marine reserves in his area. We are honored to share his memoirs. Read more about Mr. Marañón or read an excerpt from The Gringo’s Hawk.
