Beastly Encounters

The author indulges in the sport of tracking strange creatures to their lairs--including an unknown mammal in Bhutan, an ugly waterbird in Cambodia, a bizarre primate in Borneo--and the biggest fish in the world, encountered in the Philippines. Not zoology--more like cryptozoology--coming face-to-face with near-mythical creatures.

About Michael Buckley

A nomad at heart, Michael Buckley has travelled widely in the Himalayas, Central Asia, and South Asia. He is author of a number of books to these regions, including Eccentric Explorers: wild and wacky adventurers of the Tibetan plateau; Travels in the Tibetan World: detailing personal voyages to many Tibetan enclaves; Shangri-La: a Travel Guide to the Himalayan Dream; and the Bradt guidebook to Tibet.

Released in November 2014 is Meltdown in Tibet (Palgrave-Macmillan, New York), which is about serious environmental issues on the Tibetan Plateau. The book is available in both print and ebook versions.

As well as being a writer, Buckley is a passionate photographer, documentary filmmaker and environmentalist. He is filmmaker for three short documentaries about major environmental issues in Tibet that go under-reported--or not reported at all. Meltdown in Tibet is about dams and water problems on the Tibetan plateau. From Nomad to Nobody is about the plight of the vanishing nomads of Tibet. Plundering Tibet is about the devastating impact of mining in Tibet. To find out more, go to: www.WildYakFilms.com/.

As a keen trekker, kayaker, diver and wildlife enthusiast, Buckley's travels have taken him worldwide in quest of tracking unusual creatures to their lairs--which has resulted in the short ebook, Beastly Encounters.
