“When I was reading the beginning chapters of this book, I had to stop uncountable times to laugh. As I got deeper into this true story, though, I found myself increasingly moved by the author’s love for the wild animals in his care. To say he risked life and limb to help him is merely a statement of fact, and his heartbreak when one died or suffered was expressed in a touching, yet non-sentimental way.” ~ Connie Barrett, Amazon Review

Book Description: There comes a time in every man’s life when he says to himself, “Holy Sh*t! I’m about to be eaten by a bear!” Tony James Slater went to Ecuador, determined to become a man. It never occurred to him that ‘or die trying’ might be an option… The trouble with volunteering in a South American animal refuge is that everything wants a piece of you. And the trouble with being Tony, is that most of them got one. Just how do you ‘look after’ something that’s trying it’s damnedest to kill you and eat you? And how do you find love when you a) don’t speak the language, and b) are constantly covered in excrement and entrails? If only he’d had some relevant experience. Other than owning a pet rabbit when he was nine. And if only he’d bought some travel insurance…

Whether losing a machete fight with a tree, picking dead tarantulas out of a tank of live ones or sewing the head back on to a partially decapitated crocodile, Tony’s misadventures are ridiculous, unbelievable and always entertaining.

About the Author:
Tony James Slater is a very, very strange man. He believes himself to be indestructible, despite considerable evidence to the contrary. He is often to be found making strange faces whilst pretending to be attacked by inanimate objects. And sometimes – not always, but often enough to be of concern – his testicles hang out of the holes in his trousers. It is for this reason (amongst others) that he chooses to spend his life far from mainstream civilization, tackling ridiculous challenges and subjecting himself to constant danger. He gets hurt quite a lot.

Tony LOVES it when you make contact – it makes him feel a little less lonely in this big ole’ world.

“I would go so far as to say that I would recommend NOT reading this book whilst eating or drinking – snorting coffee and spraying your lunch around the place is most definitely not a good look and I would certainly not read this in a public place – trying to hide your hysterical laughter will probably result in those around you reaching for their phones and calling the men in white coats.” ~ Beeshon, Amazon Review
