If you love the Shetland Isles, or love the wildlife of the Scottish islands, then this is the book for you (Highland News)
The TV Shetland Diaries are now accompanied by a book, which sheds light on King's attachment to the natural world. As a little boy, the diaries reveal, games of hide and seek in the woods developed the patience he would later require to while away the hours in hides in the field or, as he says, happily "lost in a world of otter spraint". (Countryfile)
Brilliant observations of animal behaviour. Whether he's describing otters playing or gannets plunging off the cliffs of Noss, King slows down the action to enjoy every last, sinuous twist. (BBC Wildlife Magazine)
Heartwarming and candid (Daily Mail on WILD LIFE)
His book is packed with wild encounters (Independent on WILD LIFE)
This is a heart-warming, engagingly honest read (Scotsman on WILD LIFE)
Whether in front of the camera explaining the mysteries of the natural world ... or behind it as a skilled operator, King is one of the most engaging of natural history presenters and the prose in his autobiography, Wild Life, is every bit as addictive. (Scotsman on WILD LIFE)
Fascinating...Simon's passion is infectious, as anyone who's watched his programmes knows, and his enthusiasm pours from every word in his new book (Beautiful Britain on WILD LIFE)
Based on the sucessful BBC series, popular presenter and bestselling author Simon King, reveals the natural splendour of the Shetland Islands.See all Product description
