Paul Spencer [Wachtel] Sochaczewski, CCAS BA ’69

Paul Spencer Sochaczewski, CCAS BA ’69, (formerly Paul Spencer Wachtel) has published the book, An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles. It is Sochaczewski’s personal travel book in the footsteps of Alfred Russel Wallace, the 19th century biologist, collector, geographer, anthropologist, spiritualist, philosopher, conservationist, social critic, writer and dreamer.

Sochaczewski follows Wallace’s eight years of exploration in Southeast Asia, based on Wallace’s classic book The Malay Archipelago and Sochaczewski’s  40+ years of living and working in Southeast Asia.

Andrew W. Mitchell, founder and director of the Global Canopy Program says, “This is a classic hero’s journey – actually a double hero’s journey – which amuses, entertains and surprises us as Wallace and Sochaczewski both experience life-changing adventures in Southeast Asia.”
