Product Description

Review

"Rosolie delivers an old-fashioned jungle adventure, one with rare immediacy and depth of feeling for the people and creatures he encounters" (Wall Street Journal)

"Paul Rosolie’s solo adventures in the heart of the Amazon jungle, up close and personal with giant anacondas and jaguars, are gripping. And his dedication to preserving one of the earth’s last wildernesses is where he really sets himself apart. Mother of God is an awe-inspiring read." (Bear Grylls)

"An extraordinary book ... gripping, sometimes disturbing and always satisfying. There are parts that will haunt you, scenes you will never forget." (Jane Goodall)

"A gripping adventure story filled with plenty of adrenaline-filled encounters. A vividly written narrative of an amazingly diverse world still to be explored." (Kirkus Reviews)

"This is old-school nature writing, unabashedly romantic and free of alienation… Rosolie’s powers of description are so vivid and engrossing that readers will be swept along in his passion." (Publishers Weekly) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I'm a wildlife nut and have read books about wild places and the fascinating creatures they contain for over 40 years. This book is, without question, one of the best I have read and the author's easy and informative style makes it a joy to read. Paul's heartfelt concern for the loss of the world's wildlife and wild places is clearly shown and I find his views on the fixation of so many in the world on trivial tat whilst the incredible diversity of Nature is rapidly being erased, exactly mirror my own. To far too many people " what matter if the bee sucks not " -- as long as there's bingo, pizza and the X-factor! 3 cheers for people like Paul. I only wish I could win the lottery and really help him safeguard the wild areas which are so precious and so undervalued by world governments obsessed with economic growth; and, sadly, also by the majority of people who scurry around, totally obsessed with themselves, without giving the wild world a second thought. I can't recommend this book highly enough! If you are interested in wildlife, wilderness, adventure and a compelling read this is a book for you.
