Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide by Peter Allison
Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide

clelab20, December 20, 2007

Never have I read a book that made my heart jump and that took my breath away like this one did, and trust me, I can't count the books I've read. It made me FEEL for the event that was happening and truly connect with what was going on in each story told. Maybe I am a little biased as i love Africa and wildlife and the adventures he speaks of but the whole point of reading a book is either because you are interested in the subject or need to be educated on the subject. This book does both, I wrote notes in the book of new things I learned, and talk about a biology lesson!! My knowledge of animals has expanded as well as my respect for the attitudes of the human animal. I love a book I can come out of reading and feel smarter, now that's a great book. Well done Peter Allison, you have won me over again and again.
