Sometimes referred to as the Indiana Jones of wildlife science, Rabinowitz has travelled the world working for the Wildlife Conservation Society. This is the account of his struggle to convince the people and political leaders of Myanmar or Burma to set aside large tracks of land as protected areas. He travels five hundred miles through the lost world of northern Myanmar to the southeast edge of the Himalayas and encounters rare animals, pygmies of Asiatic origin, Tibetan monks, and the Rawang, a former slave group. His expedition proves arduous but ultimately more successful than he ever dreamed. And as he travels we learn of his lonely childhood, his difficult relationship with his father and a marriage that may not survive yet another long absence.
