Full of Attenborough's trademark enthusiasm, wit and intelligence, it's a natural history fan's treat.
A marvellous book ... unputdownable ... utterly engaging.
An elegant and gently funny writer.
Sir David is a wizard of television, and, like Gandalf or Dumbledore, he has a near-magical gift for combining warmth and gravitas . . . the man who, for me, exemplifies the best in British broadcasting.
His writing is as impressive and as enjoyable as his TV programmes and there can be no higher praise.
A great educator as well as a great naturalist.
A beautiful new edition ... of our favourite naturalist's account of his travels for the BBC
Utterly engaging . . . immensely colourful and dramatic
This is a great book for anyone who wants to vicariously travel like an old-fashioned adventurer and seeks to understand how far we have come in developing a protective attitude to wildlife
A charming period piece
