Description

Adventures with Camera and Pen is a collection of tales from Anthony Dalton “s nomadic life as an adventurer and photo-journalist. The stories run the gamut from searching for Polar bears on the shores of Hudson Bay through mountain climbing in Western Canada to tracking Royal Bengal tigers in Bangladesh jungle. They depict Dalton's often hilarious encounters with an eclectic variety of wildlife in the Canadian Arctic, the Falkland Islands and Namibia. He recounts his adventures at sea on tall-ships, and his fumbling attempts at fishing closer to home. As an expedition leader, he documents a difficult journey to remote salt mines in the Sahara north of Timbuktu with a CBC-TV film crew. With Dalton we are privy to conversations held in a rustic tea-house in Afghanistan, and we learn about the problems of travelling in Iran as the Shah began his fall from power. He takes his readers with him on a camel-buying expedition to desert locations in Oman and Saudi Arabia, and describes the difficulties involved in successfully smuggling a fellow Canadian out of Nigeria. In Morocco, Dalton wrestles with other people's problems after a drug dominated dinner. This is a book for all those who yearn for far away places: the adventurers and the armchair travellers.
