In the Hitchhiker's Trilogy and the best-selling Dirk Gently novels, Douglas Adams has taken millions of fans on wild excursions through time and space. Last Chance to See continues the trip--but this time the place is Earth, the date is today, and every word is true.
Join Douglas Adams and zoologist Mark Carwardine as they travel around the world in search of exotic, endangered creatures. In New Zealand they find the helpless but lovable kakapo: "You want to hug it and tell it everything will be all right, though you know that it probably won't be." In Indonesia they meet the giant Komoo dragon: "One is over twelve feet long and stands about a yard high, which you can't help but feel is entirely the wrong size of a lizard to be." They discover blind river dolphins in China, white rhinos in Zaïre, and rare birds in Mauritius, the home of the long-extinct dodo. Everywhere they see life in astonishing variety and imminent peril.
To read Last Chance to See is to take the trip of a lifetime with the ideal traveling companions. By turns hilarious and poignant, this book is a treat for Douglas Adams fans and a joy for anyone interested in the beauty and variety of Earth's wildlife.

Read information about the authorDouglas Noël Adams was an English author, comic radio dramatist, and musician. He is best known as the author of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. Hitchhiker's began on radio, and developed into a "trilogy" of five books (which sold more than fifteen million copies during his lifetime) as well as a television series, a comic book series, a computer game, and a feature film that was completed after Adams' death. The series has also been adapted for live theatre using various scripts; the earliest such productions used material newly written by Adams. He was known to some fans as Bop Ad (after his illegible signature), or by his initials "DNA".
In addition to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams wrote or co-wrote three stories of the science fiction television series Doctor Who and served as Script Editor during the seventeenth season. His other written works include the Dirk Gently novels, and he co-wrote two Liff books and Last Chance to See, itself based on a radio series. Adams also originated the idea for the computer game Starship Titanic, which was produced by a company that Adams co-founded, and adapted into a novel by Terry Jones. A posthumous collection of essays and other material, including an incomplete novel, was published as The Salmon of Doubt in 2002.
His fans and friends also knew Adams as an environmental activist and a lover of fast cars, cameras, the Macintosh computer, and other "techno gizmos".
Toward the end of his life he was a sought-after lecturer on topics including technology and the environment.
