About the Author

Peter Tyson is a science and travel writer with over 25 years' experience writing about science, natural history, and conservation.


'Whether meeting a leaf-tailed gecko eye to eye... or describing conservation issues and local customs, Peter Tyson provides the most enjoyable book on the natural and cultural history of Madagascar I have ever read.' George B. Schaller, Wildlife Conservation Society 'A sharp picture of an intriguing place.' Scientific American 'Part field report, part travelogue, part ecological history, Tyson's book is an engrossing testament to one of the planet's most astonishing places.' Discover 'This is an absolutely absorbing book. Peter Tyson takes us with him on a journey of discovery, describing Madagascar with a rare depth of understanding, a fine eye for detail, and a sense of wonder that is most refreshing. There is humour, sadness, puzzlement, hope for the future. When you put the book down, you truly feel as if you have been there.' Jane Goodall 'Tyson's book blends adventure,science and history into an elegant whole.' Conde Nast Traveller
