This is another one of the books that I picked up because I got one of my friends to pick out random numbers from my big list of books that I want to read and she landed on this one. It was a pretty good read, basically a little non-fiction memoir of Attenborough’s time travelling in search of a specific bird that he was trying to find.
Of course, it was written back in 1960 or so and that makes the language feel a little dated. My copy was also a super old edition that had a lot of yellowing and tiny print, so it didn’t really feel aesthetically pleasing. Fortunately the manuscript itself more than made up for it.
So if you’re looking for a little travel writing that will help you to escape from all of the madness that’s going on in the world, I’d say this is a pretty good call. I’m certainly glad that I read it, and I look forward to more Attenborough. Luckily, he has loads!
