Douglas Adams has taken millions of readers on wild excursions through time and space in his bestselling Hitchhiker's Trilogy and Dirk Gently novels. Last Chance to See continues this tradition - but the time is now and every word is true. Douglas Adams and zoologist Mark Carwardine took off around the world in search of exotic, endangered creatures. What they found will by turns amuse, fascinate, and touch you.
Join Adams and Carwardine as they encounter the animal kingdom in its stunning beauty, astonishing variety, and imminent peril: the giant Komodo dragon of Indonesia, the helpless but lovable Kakapo of New Zealand, the blind river dolphins of China, the white rhinos of Zaire, the rare birds of Mauritius island in the Indian Ocean. Hilarious and poignant - as only Douglas Adams can be - Last Chance to See is an entertaining and arresting odyssey through the Earth's magnificent wildlife galaxy.
