About this book

The author takes readers on his journeys to find wildlife around the world. As a professional zoologist, his career has taken him to six of the world's seven continents for research, photography, tourism or film-making.

Complemented with line drawings by Robin Prytherch, this is a powerful and evocative collection of stories, the result of 45 years engaging with animals and people on six continents. Dan has observed his subjects with a naturalist's passion for detail, resulting in a book that is engaging, informative and highly revealing.

"In this entertaining book, which is as much about people and places as it is about wildlife, you'll read of hair-raising encounters with giant crabs, lions and killer bees. But rest assured, with Dan Freeman you are travelling with the best of guides."
