In The Lion, the Dung Beetle and the Veld Tool Box, natural history and travel writer David Bristow delivers the fourth in his Stories from the Veld series of non-fiction narratives. You could say this book has a bit of everything: scientific descriptions of animals alongside philosophical discourses on the nature of wilderness, high drama in the jaws of death, and tragedy played out as farce when things go unexpectedly wrong on safari. You'll also find out why lions can roar so loudly, why giraffes can barely whisper, why the elephant's trunk is one of nature's wonders and why dung beetles study astronomy. The author examines questions featuring little-known information about nature and some of its creatures. Then there is the quirkier stuff, like men who think they are lions, a woman who watches wolves (otherwise known as brown hyenas), and an explorer who invented his own species. And if that was not enough, there's the man who fought off hippos and crocodiles only to be rescued by a buffalo, and a woman who lived in a tree. Written in the same engaging style as his previous three books in the Stories from the Veld series (The Game Ranger, the Knife, the Lion and the Sheep; Of Hominins, Hunter Gatherers and Heroes; and Big Pharma, Dirty Lies, Busy Bees and Eco Activists), these bush tales are written in his usual highly entertaining style, yet are intricately woven through with scholarly insights into his subjects.
