"A lifetime of adventure in the world's most exotic, untamed lands - an exuberant odyssey to distant islands, tropical forests and glacier-strewn Arctic wastes - the keen observations and infectious enthusiasm of an artist and model-maker - (this) is world-famous Terry Shortt's absorbing personal narrative of his more than forty years of field travel to the Galapagos, India, Africa, Ecudador, Northern Canada, Greenland and other far-flung destinations. Illustrated with the author's superb studies of nature and birdlife, these are more than memoirs. Vivid, sensuous, even poetic, Terry Shortt's writing conjures the world he has met and reproduced in over a thousand displays for the Royal Ontario Museum, in hundreds of illustrations for twenty books and thousands of sketches and drawings for publications throughout the world. (A)n anecdotal, entertaining celebration of a life-long devotion to nature by a master of nature lore and illustration." Three very tiny soiling marks on top of text block, minor edge wear. Dust jacket very light edge wear/wrinkling, very light browning on spine and flap-folds, light rubbing, small area of tiny soiling marks on front panel, crease at bottom of front panel, two edge tears archivally taped.
