"A rare glimpse of a fledgling David Attenborough in the wild."―Sloane Crosley, Vanity Fair
"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 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 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
