Bring ‘Em Back Alive is the out-of-print memoirs of Frank Buck, an animal-capturer from the 1910’s till into the 1930’s when this book was published.

I loved this book as a child. I still have the old book. These are adventures set in the wild during a time when most of these animals were way more exotic than during this time of fast information from the internet. This book was published in a time when there was very little entertaining television offered. These stories brought to life the adventures of a man determined to educate the rest of the world and who worked hard to help prevent the extinction of more creatures in the wild.

Bring 'em Back Alive! by Frank Buck (Buck Press 2007) (591.5) was first published in 1930 and struck many a young adventurer as Tarzan come to life! Explorer of darkest worlds, capturer of ferocious jungle beasts - who wouldn't want to be him? My rating: 7/10, finished 1982.

I liked this boom a lot. It had lots of action and adventure. Even thought it was published over fifty years ago it is still a very good book.
