Summary
Award-winning nature writer Richard Conniff takes the reader on a thrilling journey deep in to the domains of strange--and often dangerous--animals. His many ill-advised forays include: pulling a huge snapping turtle out of a Louisiana bayou, tracking leopards with iKung San hunters in the Namibian desert, and flinging chicken carcasses into piranha-infested waters to check how quickly they disappear before diving in himself
Summary
Examines the lives of creatures from around the world as observed during the author's adventures, which included a leopard hunt with !Kung San hunters in the Namibian desert and a search for the mythical migur in the Himalayas
