There comes a time in every man's life when he says to himself, "Holy Sh*t! I'm about to be eaten by a bear!"Tony James Slater went to Ecuador, determined to become a man.It never occurred to him that 'or die trying' might be an option...The trouble with volunteering in a South American animal refuge is that everything wants a piece of you. And the trouble with being Tony, is that most of them got one.Just how do you 'look after' something that's trying it's damnedest to kill you and eat you?And how do you find love when you a) don't speak the language, and b) are constantly covered in excrement and entrails?If only he'd had some relevant experience.

About the Author

Tony James Slater is a very, very strange man. He believes himself to be indestructible, despite considerable evidence to the contrary. He is often to be found making strange faces whilst pretending to be attacked by inanimate objects. And sometimes - not always, but often enough to be of concern - his testicles hang out of the holes in his trousers.
It is for this reason (amongst others) that he chooses to spend his life far from mainstream civilization, tackling ridiculous challenges and subjecting himself to constant danger. He gets hurt quite a lot.

This is not your average South American Travel Log. This is a frenetic, hold onto your hat, helter-skelter, relentless, white knuckle roller coaster of a ride into the world of a hapless volunteer working in Ecuadorian wildlife rescue centre. The characters are utterly believable, the animals savage and the unimaginable hardships endured hilariously presented. Tony James Slater blends uproarious comedy with solemn tragedy to create an unforgettable and extraordinary read.
