Summary:

As a young man, Attenborough felt he was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world. But it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day: the loss of our planet's wild places, its biodiversity. Here he shares his witness statement from a lifetime of wisdom. And he offers a hopeful vision for the future: how we can work to restore the wonderful world we inherited. -- adapted from jacket
