Last Chance to See - Douglas Adams

Last Chance to See

In "The Hitchhiker's Trilogy" and the bestselling "Dirk Gently" novels, Douglas Adams has taken his millions of fans on wild excursions through time and space. Last Chance to See continues the trip--but this time the place is Earth, the date is today, and every word is true. By turns a poignant and hilarious look at exotic, endangered creatures around the world.
New York Times bestselling author Douglas Adams and zoologist Mark Carwardine take off around the world in search of exotic, endangered creatures.

Join them as they encounter the animal kingdom in its stunning beauty, astonishing variety, and imminent peril: the giant Komodo dragon of Indonesia, the helpless but loveable Kakapo of New Zealand, the blind river dolphins of China, the white rhinos of Zaire, the rare birds of Mauritius island in the Indian Ocean. Hilarious and poignant--as only Douglas Adams can be--Last Chance to See is an entertaining and arresting odyssey through the Earth's magnificent wildlife galaxy.
