PitmanMoreA WILD LIFE: Adventures of an Accidental Conservationist in Africa (Lyons)Dick PitmanThe riveting story of one mans experiences saving wildlife in AfricaThis British ex-patriot moved to Zimbabwe in 1977, when it was stilled called Rhodesia. Pitman stumbled into saving wild animals almost by mistake. But his sense of humor, and love of animals, made him a perfect candidate for this fraught and sometimes frustrating mission. His tales from the bush and passion for wildlife and conservation are filled with humor and heartbreak--saving elephants in Matusadona National Park, tracking black rhinos, saving cheetahs, and, perhaps most dangerous, introducing foreign tourists to African wildlife. This is a witty and hope-filled true story from a talented writer who is frequently in the news discussing the challenges of Zimbabwes natural future.Dick Pitman is the founder of the Zambezi Society, a nonprofit conservation agency to protect animals in Zimbabwe. He has written three books as well as many articles in publications such as BBC Wildlife, the Washington Post, and others. He lives in Zimbabwe.
