Gone Wild: Stories from a Lifetime of Wildlife Travel
Gone Wild: Stories from a Lifetime of Wildlife Travel
by Malcolm Smith
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for all with a love for wild places and their wildlife., 12 Aug. 2016
The author, Dr Malcolm Smith, is that rare combination of a very knowledgable wildlife ecologist and gifted writer with the ability to convey his infectious enthusiasm for the study and conservation of all manner of wild animals, especially birds and mammals, to expert and general reader alike. He has been a regular contributor to major UK national newspapers and periodicals over many years, contributing thoughtful and informative pieces in a journalistic style that is easily read and assimilated while often being inspirational in content. In this impressive compilation he brings together many short essays that describe what is quite literally a lifetime of wildlife travel and nature conservation effort. It is a book to dip into again and again rather than one to be read from start to finish so I have it on my sofa-side table along with a few other books of a similar nature. Whether you are a committed conservationist or someone who simply loves our wonderful world and the astounding variety and beauty of its wild places and the wildlife that inhabit them, this book will inform and entertain you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, hard-wearing casual shoes, 26 Feb. 2016
I am wearing a pair of these as I write and have worn them almost every day for the past two years. They are still good, just scuffed and worn by hard usage, so I am about to order another pair. What everyone says about the sizing is correct, you need to order at least a half size larger than normal, but that's the only problem.

These work fine as long as they are kept clean, so a clean supply of water is essential

This review is from: Back from the Brink (Paperback)
If you want a quick summary of uplifting cases of rescuing animals (including birds) from extinction, this is not the book for you, but if you are looking for an in-depth study by an expert ecologist who has visited the habitats of the species he describes and seen them at first hand, it is. The book is packed with all sorts of information about the habitats of the threatened species Dr Smith has chosen for study, as well as of the species themselves, and their near relatives, and he has given full credit to the many gifted and determined people who have been responsible for bringing each species 'back from the brink' As one who has written extensively on ecological topics for national newspapers as well as scientific periodicals over many years he knows how to write in a way which will appeal to and capture the imagination of the general reader - this is no dry scientific treatise. The research on which the book is based has, however, been painstaking and comprehensive, the author having met, talked with and/or corresponded with most of the key figures involved. If I have one minor grouse it would be that it would have been nice to have had more photographs (those included are, without exception, excellent and very well produced), and I would personally have preferred to have the photographs spread through the text in association with the relevant articles, rather than being grouped together in one block. But this is a fairly minor irritation and all in all I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about some of the major success stories in worldwide animal conservation.

Yet another excellent biography by Claire Tomalin, sympathetic but not sycophantic, showing this amazing man warts and all. I now feel I now know Dickens so much better than before.
