Listened to as an audiobook, read by the author. Attenborough's voice is mesmerizing so I highly recommend the audiobook if you can get it.

Attenborough talks about his journey to northern Australia. Interesting encounters with the aboriginal people, the wildlife, and the denizens of an outback ghost town.

Great as a short, non-fiction biographical story. Very well told.

This was good but not great. Everything else I've read by Attenborough so far is 5-star worthy. I guess you can't hit the jackpot every time. I will still continue to read Attenborough until I've exhausted his collection.
