DRAWN FROM THE PLAINS: Life in the Wilds of Southern Africa - Lynne Tinley

R50.00

William Collins, 1979 - first edition

Hardcover with dustjacket in good condition but there is some edgefoxing present.

Lynne Tinley and her husband Ken, who is one of the leading ecologists in Africa, have devoted many years to a race against time. On the Etosha Pan, in the isolated and spectacular wildernesses of Namibia, and later on the other side of the continent at Gorongosa in Moambique, they set out to gather information which was urgently needed if the natural ecological balances of these and other African parks and reserves were to be preserved. Living in the wilderness they discovered a wealth of wonders. Sketching this far-off world of risk and hardship in words and pictures Lynne conveys images of great beauty, controversial biology, anthropology and veld humour. Moreover she provides a vivid and entertaining account of how to raise a boy and girl in the bush. Together the family survives terrorist raids, charging hippo, elephant and lion, rabid dog bites, baboon spiders, gaboon vipers, acid-shooting beetles, alcoholic snails, dangling camel membranes, and the Fat Mouse.
