Editors’ Abstract

  1. Douglas Adams’s writing is a fertile source of new ways of looking at the world. His many extraordinary books include the enormously popular series that began with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which has also been both a radio and television series.
  2. The following passage comes from Last Chance to See, by Adams and Mark Carwardine, a zoologist. The book is based on the authors’ travels around the world (with the assistance of the BBC) to see and describe the situation of endangered animals.
  3. Here Adams gives an account of meeting a free-living gorilla in Zaire.
