Wild as it gets | Travel Writing

Don Pinnock


 What’s your cat up to when you’re not around? Do dragons exist? Are clouds alive? Why did three men risk their lives for a single penguin egg?

These are just a few of the questions and stories puzzled over by award-winning travel writer and naturalist Don Pinnock. Assembled from years of wandering around Africa, this is a funny, entertaining and thought-provoking book.

‘This book will convince you that if we remove the wild places from our hearts, we will wilt and die’ Kingsley Holgate

‘makes science read like a thriller’ Justin Fox

‘instantly engrossing’ Mike Nicol
