Insightful, compelling and funny, this is more than just a book about birds. It is the true story of an impossible dream: a quest to see all of the world's most elusive avian gems - the Pittas - in a single year. Ir detailis the lengths to which one man will go to escape his mid-life crisis. A travelogue with a difference, it follows a journey from suburban High Wycombe to the leech-infested rainforests of remotest Asia, Africa and Australia.
Dangerous situations, personal traumas and logistical nightmares threaten The Jewel Hunter's progress. Will venomous snakes or razor-clawed bears intervene? Or will running out of fuel mid-Pacific ultimately sink the mission? The race is on . . . 424 pages.
