This book tells the story of Attenborough’s adventures in the Australian outback, and it’s interesting because there’s not a particularly huge focus on animals, although they do feature in it here and there.
Mostly, though, it’s all about the characters that he met along the way. Considering that he took this trip as a young man and Australians are notoriously epic and full of character, there’s a lot to like here. I mean, even though the wildlife takes a bit of a backseat, I didn’t feel as though it suffered because of it. Awesome!
