About this product
- DescriptionGlen Chilton returns with yet ather quest, this time to seek out species ill-advisedly introduced into foreign environments. Chilton visits Ireland to witness how rhododendrons, an ornamental plant that escaped a private garden, w threaten to choke out the last of the great oak forests of the United Kingdom. He escapes bloodthirsty midges and a murderous Hungarian architect while visiting a colony of forgotten Scottish wallabies; finds out how termites, brought in on packing crates after the Second World War, contributed to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans; dives with endangered sea turtles in North Queensland; and dodges crocodiles and machine guns in the eucalyptus forests of Ethiopia. And along the way, he never turns down the opportunity to share a few drinks with eccentric locals. This wickedly funny account tells the real story about the impact of invading species.
