Crows Nest: Allen and Unwin, 2012. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs.
Armed with rudimentary Spanish, dangerous levels of curiosity and a record of poor judgement, Allison set off to tackle whatever South America could throw at him. Getting involved with conservation projects as well as seeking out the wildest and rarest wildlife experiences on offer, Allison's new adventure is far from the African safari experiences he wrote of in his previous book. Getting up close and personal with a puma in Bolivia, to searching for elusive jaguars in Brazil and hunting naked with the remote Huaorani people in Ecuador, this is a fascinating and often hilarious account of misadventures in South America.
