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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whatever You Do, Don't Run is a hilarious collection of true tales from top -safari guide Peter Allison. In a place where the wrong behavior could get you eaten, Allison has survived face-to-face encounters with big cats, angry -elephants, and the world's most unpredictable animals—herds of untamed tourists and foolhardy guides whose outrageous antics sometimes make them even more dangerous than a pride of hungry lions!

Join Allison as he faces down charging lions—twice; searches for a drunk, half-naked tourist who happens to be a member of the British royal family; drives a Land Rover full of tourists into a lagoon full of hippos; and adopts the most -vicious animal in Africa as his "pet." Full of lively humor and a genuine love and respect for Botswana and its rich wildlife, Whatever You Do, Don't Run takes you to where the wild things are and introduces you to a place where every day is a new adventure!

Synopsis:

About the Author

Peter Allison set off for a year-long stay in Africa in 1994. More than a dozen years and hundreds of adventures later, he's still leading safaris and collecting stories. His safaris have been featured in National Geographic, Conde Nast Traveler, and on television programs including Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures. Antony Ferguson is a native of London, England. Upon leaving Bretton Hall School of Drama, he worked extensively in English regional repertory theaters, most notably playing the lead in Edward II, Don Juan, and Lord Byron in a production of Camino Real for Alan Ayckbourn's theater company. He has appeared several times on London's West End, winning the award for best actor as Jimmy Porter in an award-winning production of Look Back in Anger and playing the lead in The Thwarting of Baron Bolligrew by Robert Bolt. Upon moving to New York City, Antony worked Off Broadway, in regional theater, and on national tours, where he specialized in classical theater, and has won several awards for his work. He also has a thriving business in the world of voice-over and is especially fond of narrating audiobooks. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
