The jewel hunter.

The jewel hunter. Chris Gooddie.
The jewel hunter.

Princeton: Princeton University Press/WILDGuides, 2010. Octavo, colour photographs, maps, paperback.

A witty, compelling account of Goodie's hunt for all the world's Pittas in a single year. It is a humorous but detailed travelogue of his adventure, with photographs of the most difficult species as taken under the conditions of the hunt.

Insightful, compelling and laugh-out-loud funny, this is more than a book about birds. It's a true story detailing the lengths to which a man will go to escape his mid-life crisis. A travelogue with a difference, it follows a journey from the suburban straightjacket of High Wycombe to the steamy, leech-infested rainforests of remotest Asia, Africa and Australia.
