Where the Wild Things Were: Travels of a Conservationist. UNEP: The First 40 Years. How things had changed in Russia over the last few years, he thought. In the big cities at least, it was all bling and gizmos. Wi-Fi was everywhere. Even in a moving car twenty miles outside St Petersburg you could pick up a signal, which was more than could be said for some of the outlying areas of London. Edward Barnard began to tap out his message.

Stanley Johnson is a rare bird who has led the life of his choice and made the world a better place in the process

Stanley Johnson is a rare bird who has led the life of his choice and made the world a better place in the process. His joie de vivre and enthusiasm shine through, and reading this book is the closest thing to spending time in Stanley's company. Relatively few books make me laugh out loud, but I defy anyone to get through this one without at least one involuntary guffaw. He begins with a telling vignette of a visit to an extremely remote Indian tribe in Brazil whose future is threatened by a new road being carved through pristine forest and heading for the Pacific.

In this volume of collected travel and environmental journalism, Stanley travels from Exmoor to Ecuador, India to Istanbul, and across many other routes. He is charged at by mountain gorillas, encounters pandas, tigers, blue-footed boobies and the elusive blue whale. Dauntless, he climbs Kilimanjaro, catches cold at the Glastonbury festival, tracks down his ancestors in Turkey and meets legendary environmentalists such as Jane Goodall. Behind the infectious Johnson humor, there lies the deep passion of a man who has spent his life in search of wild places and wild animals, and is committed to their defense.
