David Attenborough's books and broadcasts have opened 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 his 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. The warmth and enthusiasm that have made him a broadcasting legend are instantly apparent here as he recounts his magical journeys. Three of David Attenborough's early adventures, collected together in one limited edition box set.
