Product description

Review

"A profoundly moving portrait of the region... Even now, years after I first read it, The Tree Where Man was Born seems imbued with precious vision" (Jeremy Seal Sunday Times)

"The skilled naturalist writer is almost as rare as the Congo peacock or the pygmy elephant - both subjects of the quest Peter Matthiessen conducts in African Silences. 'Skilled' is almost an insulting understatement for Matthiessen's sharply captivating prose" (Gary Mead Financial Times)

"The Tree Where Man Was Born is a truly magnificent book that will be just as important 50 years from now" (Peter Farb)

Book Description

A collection of three stunning essays on Africa by Peter Matthiessen - 'beyond dispute the best nature writer working today' (Peter Farb).
