A collection of three stunning essays on Africa by Peter Matthiessen - 'beyond dispute the best nature writer working today' (Peter Farb).
Peter Matthiessen was a naturalist, explorer and writer. His works of fiction include At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Far Tortuga and the acclaimed 'Watson Trilogy'. His explorations resulted in many fine works of non-fiction, among them The Snow Leopard, The Cloud Forest and The Tree where Man was Born. He died in 2014, aged 86.
"A profoundly moving portrait of the region... Even now, years after I first read it, The Tree Where Man was Born seems imbued with precious vision" -- Jeremy Seal * Sunday Times * "The skilled naturalist writer is almost as rare as the Congo peacock or the pygmy elephant - both subjects of the quest Peter Matthiessen conducts in African Silences. 'Skilled' is almost an insulting understatement for Matthiessen's sharply captivating prose" -- Gary Mead * Financial Times * "The Tree Where Man Was Born is a truly magnificent book that will be just as important 50 years from now" -- Peter Farb
