About this book

"Don't worry... Is no problem!" – the laid-back reply often voiced by local reps eager to help when the author was seeking advice on his travels around the world as a natural history tour guide. Yet, inevitably, the 'no problem' would often turn into a quagmire of real trouble ahead, sometimes with hair-raising consequences. He realised that leading groups of itinerant botanists, omithologists and such like was not as easy a task as one might think and even with the best-laid plans things could – and often did – go awry.

In this entertaining account of his travels, Simon Davey, a professional biologist, takes us all over the world – from Moscow to the steppes of Russia and Turkistan, and to South America including the Galapagos Islands, and engages us with a plentiful supply of adventure and mirth in order to discover, in his expert company, rare and often endangered plants and animals.
