Africa: Eye to Eye with the Unknown

Africa: Eye to Eye with the Unknown - Michael Bright, David Attenborough A tie in to the Africa series that has been on our screen recently. It has been another magnificent series by the BBC and the accompanying book for the series is a worthy tome. And a weighty tome, perfect for coffee tables.There is a mix of 50% text and 50% pictures. And as you would expect the pictures are magnificent and breathtaking. The text plays second fiddle to the images, but is still worth reading.
