MEDIA REVIEWS
'Brian Jackman is a passionate but unsentimental conservationist who lives surrounded by reminders of what's gone before. He writes with relish for the experience he is recalling and for the language in which he sets it down. His prose is clean and uncluttered, his sense of history acute.' The Sunday Times 'The author has that priceless gift of imparting his own enthusiasm without over-emphasis. it is a pleasure to be in his company.' The Sunday Telegraph 'Brian Jackman not only writes well, but has that rare gift of communicating his own sensual perceptions.' Birds Magazine 'Few writers are able to evoke a sense of place as effectively as Brian Jackman.' In Britain Magazine 'An ability to convey the beauty and magic of the place and its wildlife' Bridport News 'Brian's book is a delight for all those who have been bitten by lions or would like to be. It is full of the great spaces of Africa that, as he says, are much bigger when you're foot.' Simon Barnes, The Times 'It is hugely evocative of the African bush and its animals' Good Book Guide 'This is a collection of inspiring, passionate and often rather depressing insights from the real deal.' Wanderlust Magazine ''A picture may be worth a thousand words - but it depends whose words they are. Those of travel writer Brian Jackman capture the essence of wild places more vividly than any top-end digital SLR camera.' BBC Wildlife Magazine 'Perfect for bedtime reading.' Stephen Moss, The Guardian
