by | Read by David Attenborough

Contemporary Culture • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

British naturalist and BBC correspondent Attenborough employs his familiar, exacting, avuncular tone to narrate this essay collection. A master of beautifully written and spoken English, the ultimate wildlife documentarian expands his radio series of the same name. He is equally at home sharing anecdotal facts, whether he’s describing fossils, salamanders, or butterflies. When enthusiastically and passionately describing distant cultures and locations, Attenborough is especially sensitive and deferential. Though the well-praised illustrations are not included, listeners will be transfixed and engrossed with the excellence of these wildlife stories.
