really liked it

I got this book because it was sitting on the shelf in a used bookstore next to a book I was looking for and it looked interesting. At first I was not quite sure what the book was about, as the author was discussing phylosphy for the first 50pages or so....but then the book changes to a more of a first series of nature stories and became quiote entertaining. There are many stories of the author during his younger years and later years, and it is a good mix. The book finishes with an essay about a trip to the backcountry of india and his experiences there meeting tigers as well as other large animals as well as otherlarge animals that were roaming freely around the country side. His descriptions of the people there was also very fascinating.

There is a book this author actually mentioned about an actic explorer that I have been searching for....but never seems to be on the shelf in the stores that have it....
