I applaud John Wamsley for his efforts to sustain Australian wildlife in their natural habitat. As a fan of memoirs, I believe this book is one I should read. Thanks for the encouraging review!

An interesting mix between a boy who's childhood was hard, a man who grew to love nature and his super math brain.

Being a nature conservationist seems like such a fulfilling job. I admire John for never giving up even when the going was tough. Thanks for the recommendation! I enjoyed reading your interesting review!

Hey, this reminds me of Crocodile Dundee! I was lucky to see kangaroos, albeit from afar, the only time I was in Australia. It would be wonderful to see them with their kin in their natural habitat. Keep them wild and free, John!

I admire people who work with wildlife, especially those who work with Australian or African wildlife (kangaroos are cute but can be scary aggressive). Of course, I’d rather face the animals than the government officials and changing regulations that John and Proo had to. Thank you for the helpful review.

Australia is undeniably a fascinating place, and Dr. Wamsley sounds like an extraordinary human for all he has done towards wildlife protection. Fantastic review.
