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.

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.
