I was very much looking forward to reading this, but am really sad to say it proved a massive disappointment.
I wonder why the author (who I admire and respect greatly) has so "missed the mark" on this occassion - any ideas ?
The author has attempted via a good text and pictures that range from first class to poor The poor pictures are explained as they are the only ones that exist and for that reason are used.The author has tried to authenticate all pictures but this was not possibls as in some cases the photographer had died.
Well researched and written while it discloses the stupidity of man in caring for nature.
The section on the Tasmanian Tiger Is outstanding.
A first class read-highly recommended.
Sadly this book does not compare. Although the images are on the whole quite interesting the majority are black and white and some are at best poor.
In addition, the text does not reflect his previous writing and verges on the level of a schoolchild's text book-I think in some cases there just simply isn't a lot to be said and Mr Fuller freely admits on a couple of occasions that the circumstances and people behind some of the images are unknown.
I think this would actually have worked better as a chapter in another of his books rather than as a book in itself.
