A personal view of the natural world

Life Stories 2 is the second installment of Sir David's look back at the wildlife that has captured his imagination and enthusiasm over his distinguished career. It is a fascinating trip around the world in search of extraordinary plants, animals and people, in the company of this wonderful communicator.

Sir David shares his thoughts on a whole range of topics, from animals like the Kiwi, the Cuckoo and the Chameleon, to flora like Charnia and the canopy, and even other famous British naturalists, like the evolutionary biologist Alfred Russel Wallace.

The real magic of the book though, is Sir David's interaction with the natural world. The excitement of lying in wait to catch a glimpse of a Kiwi, or the unexpected childhood discovery of Charnia in the most unlikely place. In Life Stories 2, readers will be able to enjoy all the enthusiasm and wonder about the natural world that Sir David has so uniquely conveyed throughout his remarkable career.

Chapters: Canopy, Kiwi, Charnia, Foreign Fare, Cicada, Earthworms, Alfred Russel Wallace, Hummers, Identities, Rats, Monsters, Butterflies, Cuckoo, Quetzalcoatlus, Chameleon, Nectar, Waterton, Fireflies, Elsa, Chimps.
