David Attenborough's books and broadcasts have opened up the incredible world of natural history to millions of viewers and listeners. Zoo Quest for a Dragon takes us back to one of his earliest projects, when the BBC and London Zoo joined forces on several animal-collecting expeditions. Quest in Paradise follows his next animal collecting and filming trip to New Guinea, home of the exotic Birds of Paradise. Quest Under Capricorn details Attenborough's expedition to Australia in 1963 in search of more rare species. There he meets Aborigines, goes walkabout in the bush, and learns the secret craft of the artists of Arnhem Land. Specially recorded for audio, David Attenborough's earliest adventures are sometimes life-threatening, often hilarious and always totally absorbing. Also included is David Attenborough In His Own Words, a collection of interviews taken from the BBC radio and TV archives.
