About this book

Although not yet 30, Frankham has travelled to more than 25 countries, including some of the most geographically remote and culturally diverse places on Earth. Wildlands is a highly readable account of his travels, a distillation of his experiences in a dozen ecologically significant locations. He describes a close encounter with the lions of Okavango and a journey through the world's driest desert to find the ancient Himba people in Namibia. From the tiny Mantis shrimp with pincers that punch to the mighty Komodo dragon, Wildlands is packed with stories about people and places and well illustrated.
