Robert S. Mellis began his journalism career in Scotland and emigrated to the U.S. at the age of 20. He has worked as a reporter, editor, designer and publisher of large and small daily and weekly newspapers and cultivated his belief that brainpower always outstrips resources when it comes to creating journalistic excellence.
As a result, his forays into some of the world's poorest countries, where resources often are non-existent, allowed him to put his belief system into action.
This book recounts some of the extraordinary stories he helped write while on his training visits to the smaller countries in the world. In addition, he exposes the reader to the excitement of discovery in the remotest places, where he came face to face with headhunters, wild elephants, cheetahs and lion. The book contains numerous photographs that illustrate the narrative.
