Along the way, you’ll find that you’ve gained tremendous insight into nature. No guide book compares to the author’s ability to explain the thought processes and actions of a variety of animals, from insects to elephants. While his depth of knowledge is outstanding, it’s his ability to relay that information in the form of a complete story that is truly riveting and will captivate you throughout this book.
All this from a gentleman that I only knew was an outstanding birder and star of Nikon’s Birding Adventures television show. I have watched every episode of that show more than once, following Mr. Currie through my TV screen to exotic locations to see the rarest of birds, learning from him as he tells intriguing stories about each bird. Now that I know his knowledge extends far beyond birds, I’m hoping for a TV series or movie based on this book that includes all of his adventures!
The only caveat about this book is that there are occasional moments when adult language is used. Of course if you’re about to be eaten by a lion, killed by a puff adder or trampled by an elephant, you might utter an expletive or two!
