Praise For…

“Historian [Kelly] Enright showcases the careers of Osa and Martin Johnson, explorers, wildlife-movie pioneers, and inseparable adventure seekers. . . . The couple’s delight and happiness in living the life they made for each other shines through.”
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Kelly Enright’s previous book, Rhinoceros:


“Like its predecessors, this volume alternately informs, delights, moves, and astonishes. Success here owes as much to author as to subject. The former, a cultural and environmental historian, acquits herself admirably, distilling fact from fiction, employing supple and incisive prose, and trailing casual acumen in her measured wake.”
