'Modest, down to earth and full of humour, this is one of the best books about filming I've ever read.' MICHAEL PALIN 'Extraordinary: Gavin's easy prose and gasp-making encounters make for a gripping and very funny read. It's a rollercoaster ride with a complete professional. I loved it.' JOANNA LUMLEY '[Gavin is] a great cameraman with infinite patience, but also a writer with great powers of observation and expression. Brilliant!' ALAN TITCHMARSH _________ From Gavin Thurston, the award-winning Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II cameraman with a foreword by Sir David Attenborough comes extraordinary and adventurous true stories of what it takes to track down and film our planet's most captivating creatures. Gavin has been a wildlife photographer for over thirty years. Against a backdrop of modern world history, he's lurked in the shadows of some of the world's remotest places in order to capture footage of the animal kingdom's finest: prides of lions, silverback gorillas, capuchin monkeys, brown bears, grey whales, penguins, mosquitoes - you name it he's filmed it. Come behind the camera and discover the hours spent patiently waiting for the protagonists to appear; the inevitable dangers in the wings and the challenges faced and overcome; and the heart-warming, life-affirming moments the cameras miss as well as capture. What other readers are saying about Journeys in the Wild: 'It's touching, it's thought provoking and its emotional...Go pick it up. It's an absolute inspiration of a book.' Goodreads 'Full of unbelievable anecdotes from decades of work, some absolutely hilarious, this book left me in complete wonder.' Goodreads 'An amazing read and I would heartily recommend it to everyone I know.' Goodreads

Timo’s done them all! To the Gemfields from the building sites, he’s had some epic journeys filled with adventures that tested his strength, courage, and determination through the trials, tribulations, triumphs, and tragedies. They include a five-year sail around the world with his wife and daughter on their yacht Iceberg. In 1999, he was the first man to paddle an outrigger sea kayak from Fraser Island to Cape York Peninsula. It was a four-and-a-half month journey, pitting him against some of the worst weather conditions, not to mention the man eating sharks and saltwater crocodiles, and he survived by collecting rainwater and hunting for his food with his throwing spear. Then in 2003, he walked one-thousand-plus kilometers, pulling a trolley loaded with his supplies, from Mareeba to Cape York, the most northern point of Australia. A few years later, in 2006, he rode a pushbike 2,300 kilometers from the Gold Coast to Kangaroo Island in South Australia. With a combination of memories and daily journal entries, he captures the spirit of Australia in a very unique way. Like his Viking ancestors, Timo not only survived, but beat the odds.

The authors believe that tourism can only be adequately assessed through a consideration of how it fits into the structure of power. It is also argued that tourism cannot be analyzed without a consideration of its impacts on and links with development. This relationship between tourism, responsibility, power and development is explored in chapters covering both the macro and the micro level of responsibility. The authors look at methods of practising tourism responsibly or irresponsibly at the personal, company, national and international levels. The questions and dilemmas of "placing" responsibility in the tourism industry are examined throughout.
