Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966548523, Paperback)This is a biography of the author's maternal grandparents, Orlando and Eva Flye, from the United States, who after several failed attempts, developed a highly successful coffee plantation, Hacienda Cincinnati, on the high mountain slopes of the Sierra Nevada in northern Colombia in the early 1900s. The narrative further documents the significant contributions of ornithologist, entomologist, naturalist of tropical America, Melbourne A. Carriker, Jr., father of the author, who significantly elarged the tropical bird collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the Carnegie Museum, and other museums. By his side was Carmela Flye, whose tireless spirit and efficiency contributed significantly to her husband's bird and bird-lice collecting and the development and running of their own coffee plantation, Hacienda Vista Nieve, adjacent to Hacienda Cincinnati.
