Driven by a life-long interest in the aquatic world, Tim Hovey turned his back on a low level engineering job to begin training for a career in field biology. The early training takes Tim from the high seas of the Pacific Ocean, to the dusty roads of Baja California in pursuit of science. Sleeping in the dirt and living off the bounty of the sea, Tim learned to adapt to the sometimes rugged field conditions. Along the way he conquered fears and developed a lasting relationship with the field sciences.
Out in the Field chronicles the many adventures of an outdoor career that a large percentage of the general public may never see. Tim scrapes away the romantic and often misunderstood view of marine scientists, and takes an honest and often humorous look at what it actually takes to become a field biologist. And while Tim was completely aware that changing career paths would eventually lead him to a job working outdoors, he had no idea that on several occasions it would also risk his life. (190 pages).
