ADVENTURES OF A YOUNG NATURALIST


ADVENTURES OF A YOUNG NATURALIST

DAVID ATTENBOROUGH    Book Number: 90904    Product format: Paperback

Welcome paperback reprint of a book first published in 1980 under the title 'The Zoo Quest Expedition: Travels in Guyana, Indonesia and Paraguay.' In 1954 a young David Attenborough had the opportunity of a lifetime, to travel the world finding rare and elusive animals for London Zoo's collection, and to film the expedition for the BBC in a new show called Zoo Quest. This is his story written in his inimitable voice of these travels. Staying with local tribes while searching for giant anteaters, Komodo Dragons in Indonesia and armadillos in Paraguay, he battles with cannibal fish, aggressive tree porcupines and escape-artist wild pigs to record the incredible beauty and biodiversity of these regions. The methods may be outdated now, but the fascination and respect for wildlife, the people and the environment are not. Now we can all travel vicariously with the old-fashioned adventurer and Britain's favourite naturalist who is an elegant and gently funny writer.
