5.0 out of 5 stars Funny book about the misadventures of a traveller and animal enthuasist, 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Walk a Puma...& other things I learned while stumbing around South America (Paperback)
I do like Peter Allison's books and felt the wait for this one was too long - write the next one quicker please! This is funny book by a genuine animal enthuasist, this time exploring South America (previous books which you must read were set in Botswana where he was a safari guide). Genuine self deprecating humour, very interesting tales, his enthuasim for the people, the places and the animals coms through page after page. He genuinely does walk a puma, in between getting jumped on, bitten and dragged through the undergrowth only using trees as a brake, as well as spending time deep in the Amazon and exploring round South America.

If you imagine Peter Allison as Steve Irwin meets Gerard Durrell after shaking hands with Bruce Parry then you'll get the idea. I can't recommend this book highly enough and urge a) people to read this one and his other two books and b) Peter to write another one ASAP!
