I listened to James Alexander Currie speak at a bird festival a couple of years ago. I immediately purchased both of his available dvds and his book. He is a fabulous speaker, very engaging, very knowledgable. The book chronicles his life as a wildlife guide in South Africa where he grew up. It’s packed full of funny, awesome, scary adventure stories.
Book: When Eagles Roar: The Amazing Journey of an African Wildlife Adventurer
What you miss in reading his book is his wonderful accent. The dvd’s and youtube episodes feature great birds, solid conservation & ecotourism principles and are lots of fun.
