Pitman, founder of the Zambezi Society, a conservation nonprofit working to save animals in Zimbabwe, did not mean to become a champion of wildlife when he first came to the country, then called Rhodesia in the late 1970s. However he proved to be of the right stuff, and as he did battle with developers, poachers, and those heedless to the disappearance of animals, he found the job was not about himself as much as it was about the cause. When eco-tourism seemed to be a lucrative, if not good idea, he even set about taming the wildest critters of all, those being a wide range of self-centered, environmentally oblivious and often downright crazy tourists. Pitman's accounts are sometimes poignant, sometimes angry, and often hilarious. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
