Zoo Quest: The Adventures of a Young Naturalist

Zoo Quest: The Adventures of a Young Naturalist

65 years after Sir David Attenborough joined the BBC, this charming biography looks back at the early years of his career and the beginning of his fame as a natural history icon. Until now has itbeen out of print for decades.


Back in 1954, Attenborough was offered the remarkable job of presenting Zoo Quest, a series in which a team travelled the world in search of animals to bring back to London Zoo. Not only was this the start of a legendary career in broadcasting, it forever changed the way the public viewed the natural world.


Packed with adventure and written with Attenborough's trademark wit and charm, this book takes us back to where it all began.
