Johnny Kingdom is the living embodiment of the English countryside. He has spent his whole life on or around Exmoor, from his childhood spent trapping moles to sell their skins, to his early adventures as a poacher, to today, when the demands of wildlife photography mean that extraordinary patience is more important than the ability to run fast.
Johnny still lives in the same village as his father and his father before him. Married to his childhood weetheart, Julie, he took on his dad's official job as the local gravedigger (and his unofficial living as a poacher) before a horrific accident Made him change his lifestyle and seek less physically demanding work - wildlife photography. Johnny's book is full of hilarious escapades, from the story of his night sharing a jail cell with a red deer stag to how he persuaded the local badger population to run along a mini assault course, turning wheels and tilting up and down on see-saws.
As Johnny takes the world by storm with his own successful TV series, meet the man behind the camouflage...
