JOURNEYS TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD

DAVID ATTENBOROUGH    Book Number: 90905    Product format: Paperback

A companion to 90904 Adventures of A Young Naturalist, the book was first published in 1981 under the title 'Journeys to the Past: Travels in New Guinea, Madagascar, and the Northern Territory of Australia', and in paperback in 2018 under the title 'Two Roads'. With some 90 photos, many colour plates and maps, we can travel vicariously with the pioneering naturalist Sir David Attenborough in his early days. Following the success of the original Zoo Quest expeditions in the late 1950s onwards the young David Attenborough embarked on further travels. From the land divers of Pentecost Island and the Sing-Sings of New Guinea to a Royal Kava ceremony on Tonga and the ancient art of the Northern Territory, this is a journey like no other. Alongside these remarkable creatures, Sir David encounters paradise birds, chameleons, Sifakas, pygmies and dancing birds, flamingos, tenrecs and mouse lemurs, the dog-headed man, babakoto, geese and goannas, painted caves and buffaloes, and the hermits of Borroloola. 'Every year for a decade, between 1954 and 1964, it was my great luck to go to the tropics and make natural history films.' 'I have left the accounts of these places and events essentially as I wrote them.' Written with his usual charm and generosity, he allows us to go along for the ride. 413pp, paperback. 90 illus. including colour plates.
