I bought this book sight-unseen and was surprised to find it to be more of a printed slide show of Bob Brown's travels than a well considered narrative from a well-known environmentalist and politician. The promotional copy suggests that the book holds "Photography paired with Bob's personal and insightful anecdotes." What is not told is that those insights are no more than extended captions to his personal photography. The photography is good, some is better than good but little is exceptional as one might expect from a real "coffee-table" book. I know this is a tough review and I am sure many readers will appreciate it and its style and format. It's just not what I was looking for or expected.
