Wild Things, Wild Places : Adventurous Tales of Wildlife and Conservation on Planet Earth
The observation of wildlife has dwindled in past decades except for such narrator naturalists as the late George Page, Marty Stoufer, and David Attenborough (who is still going strong at 90), et al. It is, therefore, a delight to see interest in the world of the wild rekindled once more. Jane Alexander has done just that in her new book, Wild Things, Wild Places. These are tales of observations in the wild that are so important to be given life in our time.
This author impresses me with a dazzling display. She’s done a comprehensive job of discussing pertinent issues in most wild places throughout the world. The content appears to be a collection of anecdotes. Although the content is a little wordy at times, Alexander’s prose is articulate and clear, denoting a powerful perspective on wildlife.
It appears Ms. Alexander enjoys an extensive notoriety with movie roles and connections with influential people. This will help propel her motivation to support wildlife further down the road. Her many involvements with various organizations also help propel her career as a concerned supporter of wildlife and wild places, making her book inevitable. I certainly applaud her incredible efforts.
