Review By: Afgriland - June/July 2010

Amateur naturalists of all descriptions, first-time international visitors to South Africa's bushveld and aspiring game rangers can learn more about the bush with this handy companion. Megan Emmett, researcher, photographer and assistant producer in the wildlife television industry, and Sean Pattrick, accredited Theta/FGASA guide's trainer and accomplished photographer, collaborated to bring the reader 352 pages of information that is usually only available if you have a game ranger or field guide by your side. 

Game Ranger in Your Backpack has a reader-friendly mind-map layout with pictures linked to brief but informative text boxes, making pertinent information accessible at a glance. This unique guide is packed with practical, interpretative information on the most commonly encountered animals and plants of the Lowveld, and features 1200 full colour photographs. It teaches people how to observe, identify and interpret what they see in the bush in a meaningful way, without having to wade through reams of technical information.
