Editorial Reviews

Review

An enlightening glimpse beyond the lens.―TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

[Gavin is] a great cameraman with infinite patience, but also a writer with great powers of observation and expression. Brilliant!―Alan Titchmarsh

This is an absorbing account of a fascinating career.―BBC WILDLIFE MAGAZINE

His no-holds-barred memoir plunges you into the serendipities and perils of working in the remote wilderness, as he stands stock-still to 'hide' from short-sighted African elephants in Kenya, films demoiselle cranes flying 6 kilometres up above Nepal, or marvels at the hiss of Mauritania's dryland crocodiles.―Barbara Kiser, NATURE

Gavin's book is extraordinary: his easy prose and gasp-making encounters make for a gripping and very funny read. It's a rollercoaster ride with a complete professional. I loved it.―Joanna Lumley

Gavin Thurston's book has all sorts of strengths. His camera has captured some of the most eye-catching images of the natural world ever seen on television. And he can write. He brings the process home to us in a style that is modest, down to earth and full of humour. This is one of the best books about filming I've ever read. Michael Palin --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Gavin Thurston is an award-winning cameraman specialising in wildlife.

He has survived charging elephants, being hunted by lions, close encounters with a grizzly bear mum, wild wolves, plane crashes, civil wars, and coups. And once, whilst filming for a BBC special on Gorillas, he was slapped by a silverback.

Gavin has won numerous awards including 5 EMMYs, 3 BAFTAs and a Royal Humane Society Award for Bravery.
