Product description


"Inspired by the drama of Africa... a personal insight into the
perennially important subject of saving the animals"
-- The Irish Times, May 2007

"This inspirational, sometimes troubling tale illustrates the
value of conserving Africa's wildlife for future generations." -- Real Travel magazine, July 2007

'provides insights into the many conservation disasters and triumphs he's experienced'
-- African Hunter, June 2007

Poignant and compelling, Dick Pitman is an inspiration to all.
Wittily written and never boring.
-- FD Magazine (May 2007)

From the Back Cover

Dick Pitman was a British ex-patriot who moved to Zimbabwe in 1977, when it was still called Rhodesia. As the Zambezi Valley was threatened by development, Pitman stumbled his way into saving wild animals almost by mistake. But his sense of humor and love of animals made him a perfect candidate for this dangerous and sometimes frustrating mission. In A Wild Life, Pitman's tales from the bush mingle with poignant descriptions of the African landscape, and his conservation efforts are filled with both humor and heartbreak whether he's saving elephants in Matusadona National Park, tracking black rhinos, saving cheetahs, or, perhaps most dangerous of all, introducing foreign tourists to African wildlife. Inspired by the splendors and drama of wild Africa, A Wild Life is a lighthearted account of a quarter-century in conservation. Written with wit and charm, it is a hope-filled story about saving Africa's animals and Zimbabwe's natural future. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
