Game Ranger in Your Back Pack
By

Rating
This guide is packed with practical, interpretative information on the most commonly encountered animals and plants of the Lowveld - information that is usually only available if you have a game ranger or field guide by your side in the bush! It teaches people how to observe, identify and interpret what they see in the bush in a meaningful way, without having to wade through the reams of technical information found in most other field guides. The reader-friendly mind-map layout of the book, with pictures linked to brief but informative text boxes, makes pertinent information accessible at a glance. Other features include colour-coded chapters for ease of reference, while blocked information and icons in the mammals and trees sections provide technical details in a concise form. Hundreds of stunning interpretative images, highlighted keywords and a flowchart structure to each spread direct the eye to the different topics on each featured species, allowing the reader to pick out whatever is of interest to him or her. Game Ranger in your Backpack is an essential companion for amateur naturalists of all descriptions including first-time international visitors to South Africa's bushveld, annual local holidaymakers or aspiring 'game rangers'.

Reviews

Rangers are the waitrons of the private safari industry young and personable but overworked, underpaid and reliant on tips. So while seeing Kruger guided by a beardless wonder who likes to impress the ladies with his rifle is one option, another is to buy this book and do it yourself. With all the information game rangers learn during their initial studies, including the intimate habits of everything from aardvarks to zebras, this fantastic colour-coded guide will allow wildlife enthusiasts to wow friends and family with their broad knowledge of the geology of the Lowveld, its animals, insects, plants and tracking. Emmett knows her stuff, having worked as a field guide in Kruger and as a researcher and writer for wildlife TV shows such as 50/50.
