Discover what it’s like to live in—not just visit—two of the world’s great wildlife parks. Charlie Hamilton James has been shooting in Peru’s Manu National Park—the most bio-diverse place on Earth—for more than two decades. Fiercely motivated to protect the rainforest and its inhabitants, he bought a piece of land adjoining the park—only to discover that he had purchased an illegal cocaine factory along with it. His misadventures as an Amazonian landowner were documented in the BBC Television series, I Bought a Rainforest. More recently, Charlie has been living in Yellowstone, America’s original wildlife park, for the 2016 centennial of the National Park Service. Join this critically acclaimed photojournalist as he recounts his unlikely journey from the Peruvian rainforest to the mountain landscapes of Yellowstone, and beyond.
