Review

Praise for "Whatever You Do, Don't Run" "Allison's infectious enthusiasm for both the African bush and his job showing its wonders to tourists is readily apparent." --"Booklist" "His misadventures make "Whatever You Do, Don't Run" an absorbing read. . . . The material is rich, and Allison is a gifted storyteller. And the only thing stranger than African fiction is African truth." --"National Geographic Adventure" "After reading this entrancing memoir, an African safari may move to No. 1 on your travel wish list. The only catch is you'll want the author as your guide." --"Chicago Sun-Times""" Praise for "Don't Look Behind You: "

"The best compliment you can pay a travel writer is to read his work and feel like you're right there with him. For more than two hundred pages, I felt like I was in Africa, up to my neck in danger. I don't even know this guy, but more than once I lay awake at night, worrying for his safety. Enough adventure, action, life lessons, and laughs to fill a movie and four sequels. The fact that Allison survived to write any of this down is a miracle in itself." --Cash Peters, author of "Naked in Dangerous Places" and "Gullible's Travels"

From the Back Cover

The best compliment you can pay a travel writer is to read his work and feel like you re right there with him. For more than two hundred pages, I felt like I was in Africa, up to my neck in danger. I don t even know this guy, but more than once I lay awake at night, worrying for his safety. Enough adventure, action, life lessons, and laughs to fill a movie and four sequels. The fact that Allison survived to write any of this down is a miracle in itself. Cash Peters, author of Naked in Dangerous Places and Gullible s Travels Romantic notions aside, being a safari guide isn t always particularly glamorous. Quite often it is beset with challenges, like having to spend a night in a thorn tree with marauding hyenas below. But safari guide Peter Allison lives for such moments. Here, the author of the widely praised Whatever You Do, Don t Run details his time spent in safari camps not only in Botswana but also in South Africa, Mozambique, and Namibia places he loves, despite how much it feels like they just might be trying to kill him.In Don t Look Behind You, Allison recounts adventures few would live to tell. Like the time he and a group of bored guides launched a makeshift raft into a foaming river teeming with hippos and crocodiles. Or the afternoon he heard monkeys telling him that a leopard was walking around the camp, and then realized the leopard was in his tent, with him in it.Join Peter Allison for another riveting, rollicking, behind-the-scenes dose of everyone s dream experience going on safari and come through amazed but, thankfully, without a scratch.Peter Allison is the"
