Following the success of the original Zoo Quest expeditions, in the late 1950s onwards a young David Attenborough embarked on further travels in a very different part of the world.

From Madagascar and New Guinea to the Pacific Islands and the Northern Territory of Australia, he and his team were not just searching for rare animals, but were aiming to record the way of life of some of the tribes of these regions, whose traditions had never been seen by most of the British public before.

From the land divers of Pentecost Island and the sing-sings of New Guinea, to a Royal Kava ceremony on Tonga and the ancient art of the Northern Territory - the place where, it has since been discovered, humanity has existed the longest - it is a journey like no other. Along the way, he encounters paradise birds, lemurs, sifakas, and many more animals in areas that are home to some of the most unique wildlife on the planet.

Written with David Attenborough's characteristic charm, humour and warmth, Journeys to the Other Side of the World is a unique, and inimitable, adventure among people, places and the wildest of wildlife.

Industry Reviews

Abundantly good - TLS

engaging and evocative but ultimately poignant . . . Attenborough is a fine writer and storyteller - Irish Times

This book is a wondrous reminder of Attenborough's pioneering role and the often hilarious difficulties he faced . . . A century ago, we learnt about exotic creatures from intrepid explorers in pith helmets. Now we learn from slick, professional TV presenters. David Attenborough has led the way from one style to the other and this book is full of delightful tales from the period of transition. - Daily Express

Fascinating - OK!

pure gold . . . the story of a journey to discover the fugitive, mythical, 'other': Paradise - Wild at Home

With his usual charm and generosity, Attenborough allows us along for the ride - Irish Examiner

An in-depth look at the beloved naturalist's momentous voyage made in his youth across the globe - Woman's Weekly

In his May 2018 introduction to these books first published in the early '60s, the great broadcaster naturalist recalls a much changed planet . . . But Attenborough's lust for all types of life remains undimmed as in those distant days - RTE Guide
