The Alby Mangels Story
Beyond World Safari : An Authorised BiographyBook - 2007
At the height of his fame Alby Mangels was more than just a household name -- he was a legend. His blockbuster travel documentaries, the WORLD SAFARI series, blazed a path into untamed territories. He explored the world and took us along. With an irrepressible spirit of adventure, his bull terrier by his side and a crew of willing accomplices, Alby's daring and dangerous exploits catapulted this very private person from obscurity to superstardom. The backlash was just as swift. Claims were made that his films were misleading and staged. A nature lover, he was accused of animal cruelty and even in his personal life Alby was often branded a 'playboy'. Now, decades on, Lynn Santer takes us beyond the WORLD SAFARI series to find the real Alby Manges -- a legend who disappeared from the public spotlight no sooner than he'd found it. Discover the untold stories that followed, as Alby continued to explore the traditional cultures, natural wonders and incredible animals that share our planet. With a balance between the psychological impact that people and events had on Alby, and the pure action of his adventures, this book can take you on an exciting journey of its own. Anyone interested in adventure -- who longs to experience it themselves, or just kick back and savour the adventures of others -- will find this book to be a satisfying trek into the world of a free-spirit and a spiritual inspiration.
