4.0 out of 5 stars The early years, 4 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zoo Quest to Madagascar (Paperback)
This book is a great read with lots of information on Madagascar's natural history, although much of it has been refined by more recent research. Many things the Attenborough describes as mysteries have been solved since.

It's essentially a diary of Attenborough's trip to Madagascar for his 1961 Zoo Quest TV-series on the island, and it served as a companion to the series, which is evident in the chapters following the episodes. It can be read on its own perfectly though.

To me, the book really earns the 4 stars thanks to Attenborough's revisiting the island 50 years later in 2011 to film a stellar three part documentary. The beauty of those images and the rich information stand in stark contrast with the naive portrayal 50 years earlier, showing the enormous evolution of knowledge since. This contrast makes it so much fun to read!!
