About the Author

Sir David Attenborough is a broadcaster and naturalist whose television career is now in its seventh decade. After studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge and a brief stint in publishing, he joined the BBC. Since the launch of his famous Zoo Quest series in 1954, he has surveyed almost every aspect of life on earth and brought it to the viewing public. His latest program, Planet Earth II, was the most watched nature documentary of all time. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"Attenborough relates his adventures of sixty years ago with typical British wit . . . 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 toward wildlife."―Frans de Waal, The New York Times


"Everyone who enjoys wildlife programming on television owes a debt of gratitude to David Attenborough. Attenborough--zoologist by training, TV man by profession--pioneered the concept over sixty years . . . He went out in the field, lived in the jungle for weeks at a time, and wrestled everything from caimans to boa constrictors . . . His new memoir, Adventures of a Young Naturalist, collects accounts of three of his first trips into the wilderness, stories that amaze and fascinate."
Curt Schleier, Minneapolis Star Tribune


"A rare glimpse of a fledgling David Attenborough in the wild."
Sloane Crosley, Vanity Fair


"A marvelous book, an invaluable record of David Attenborough's first three journeys . . . What makes this elegant book so unputdownable is that Attenborough makes the viewer feel inside the picture, part of his team . . . On the page, as on the screen, he shares, shows, explains. His style is disarmingly self-deprecating, utterly engaging."―Telegraph

"An elegant and gently funny writer."The Times

"One of the last of the pith-helmeted, noble British adventurers, he tells a host of wondrous tales set in the last years of the crumbling British Empire and he tells them beautifully . . . His writing is as impressive and as enjoyable as his TV programs and there can be no higher praise."―Daily Express

Praise for David Attenborough

"A great educator as well as a great naturalist."
President Barack Obama

"When I was a young boy, I used to love turning on the television and watching [Attenborough's] programs and really feeling like I was either back out in Africa or I was learning about something magical and almost out of this planet."―Prince William, Duke of Cambridge

"[Attenborough] is a wizard of television, and, like Gandalf or Dumbledore, he has a near-magical gift for combining warmth and gravitas."―Louis Theroux, award-winning BBC documentary filmmaker --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
