Clive’s contact with baobab trees and their presence, combined with his desire to retrace his steps, as well as record and capture these remarkable trees, their size, human history and his own adventures upon first encountering them, means that these remarkable trees are woven into his autobiography, with the skilful assistance of Sally Antrobus.
Clive’s journey covers a large spectrum of the southern African landscape – an amazing 45 000 km – and identifies and records forty trees through photos and art. For Clive Walker, these forty trees represent the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Endangered Wildlife Trust.
Clive Walker’s career has seen him as a game ranger, writer, and a leading force in environmental education and conservation. As a wildlife artist he has used his art to raise tens of thousands of rands for conservation projects.
