Travels in Search of the Human Species
Desmond Morris, renowned natural historian, wrote his autobiography 'Animal Days' thirty years ago, recounting his life up to the point in 1967 when he published 'The Naked Ape'. Since those days he has continued his work on human and animal species, written many other bestselling books, presented a number of major television series on these subjects, and travelled the world.
In this new volume of autobiographical essays, he describes these travels in fascinating and often hilarious detail, together with the observations about human behaviour to which they gave rise. His travels have taken him from the cities of north America to the islands of the Mediterranean, around the whole of Europe, to the Pacific and around Africa - a total of some sixty countries throughout the world. The final chapter describes his recent journey around the world in 90 days.
