"Very funny and moving...The glimpses of rare fauna seem to have enlarged [Adams'] thinking, enlivened his world; and so might the animals do for us all, if we were to help them live."

Effie, June 6, 2008 (view all comments by Effie)
Douglas Adams writes with wit and wisdom about the sad plight of the disappearance of a myriad of species on this Earth that we, as humans, are promulgating. It's a sad, heart-breaking but fascinating read. The only thing wrong with it is that there aren't more photos of the fast-disappearing endangered animals he and his cohorts go in quest of finding to document them in words.
