‘In more than 60 essays, Keith Howman weaves a colourful garland celebrating a well-travelled life. His experiences in more than a quarter of the world's nations cover topics as diverse as fishing, wildlife art, military history, cattle breeding and conservation. Somehow, pheasants are also squeezed into the 274 well-illustrated pages. A particular interest has been the involvement of local people in conservation, whether in Pakistan, the Hindu Kush or Nepal. This is a family saga,
of which many episodes have been shared with WPA members, but the scope of Keith's activities will surprise everyone.’
Dr Geoffrey Davison, WPA Trustee

 Sid’s Roar is a true to life story about a lioness and her three cubs' efforts to survive in Africa (Kenya). Inside the front cover all the illustrations are in a blue, green, grey colour which is the colour lions see the world in. It is best suited to ages four to seven years and has a happy ending! The objective of the book is to encourage children to take on board how differently to us animals and birds see the world. It encourages them to ask questions and two pages at the back of the book help them to understand concepts like the importance of up-wind and down-wind, camouflage, territory and core area of a range. A parent with a spread of children’s ages to read to at night can sit with one book and interest them all, and learn something themselves! All sales from Sid’s Roar over and above the costs of publication will go to WPA.
