Beschreibung

Subtitled, "The Life & Times Of Denys Finch Hatton", this acclaimed biography of the conservationist, scholar, soldier, white hunter and fabled lover strongly evokes the milieu and landscapes of British East Africa, as well as providing a compelling portrait of the man himself. This paperback edition should do very well. 'She writes beautifully, with a vivid turn of phrase, a sound grasp of history and an impish humour.' "Sunday Times"

Portrait

Sara Wheeler's books include the international bestseller Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica, of which the Telegraph reviewer wrote, 'I do not think there will ever be a better book on the Antarctic.' The Magnetic North: Notes from the Arctic Circle was chosen as Book of the Year by Will Self, Michael Palin, A. N. Wilson and others. Sara's latest book is Access All Areas: Selected Writings 1990-2010. She has published two biographies of travellers: Cherry: A Life of Apsley Cherry-Garrard, and Too Close to the Sun: The Life and Times of Denys Finch Hatton, and was immensely relieved to write about women at last in O My America!. She lives in London.
