I’ve been searching for over 4 years without luck. I remember as a kid when it first came out, Zimbi books sold copies and I still kick myself for not buying one! Good luck in your search, if you happen to come across 2 copies please send me a pm. I’ll do the same.I wish I could tell you where to find a copy of this book because now I want one, too! The description makes it seem fascinating. Just the thing for an armchair traveler.
I have not yet found it for sale by the usual common sources but it is in the library collection of several universities and museums in the U.S. and at least one zoo so it may be available as an inter-library loan. At 798 pages it will keep a reader busy for a while. Thanks for the tip.
