From the biographer of Jane Goodall comes an eccentric blend of travels and adventures based on the underlying story of two men, sometime friends and allies, who uncover through personal experience the tragedy of animal extinctions in Africa and Asia. By turns ironic, funny, and tender, it contemplates changing landscapes and a vanishing world.
Over the last fifteen years, nature historian Dale Peterson has collaborated with photographer Karl Ammann to produce three books about apes, elephants, and giraffes. For this new memoir, Peterson recounts his travels with the iconoclastic Swiss photographer through Africa and Southeast Asia, serving as his Boswell and discovering along the way magnificent splendor, unexpected humor, and tragic loss.
