Regular price $18.50 Sale

Alison Ballance has bumped over the Mongolian stepped in search of wild horses; camped in mud when trying to film New Zealand's rare, nocturnal kakapo; she's flown deep into the Himalayas where demoiselle cranes migrate across the world's highest mountains. The intrepid wildlife film-maker has travelled to some of the earth's remotest places for footage of our endangered species. Working for TV production company Natural History New Zealand, her search for tigers has taken her to Thailand's steamy jungle and the Russian Far East in winter. Propelled by a passion for observing and sharing the wonder and the plight of the animal world, Ballance has journeyed into the wilds, and to sanctuaries where fragile hope for species has been rekindled. Dispelling myths of film-industry glamour, Ballance's experiences range through uncomfortable and heartbreaking to absurd. Her story also captures the joy and elation of discovery. Whether she's nose to beak with a kakapo or riding a Bactrian camel in the Gobi Desert, travels with this winsome wildlife film-maker are captivating, exhilarating - and inspiring. This 2005 Longacre Press Paperback is in Very Good condition.
