Ben Fogle - New Book

Post  littlewid on Sun Aug 19, 2012 10:26 am

This is an extract from Ben Fogles new book, the details are at the bottom of the article. Apparantly his love of animals started with a grumpy old Parrott. I quite like Ben Fogle so may just have to get this book.
This little article is a nice read.

I'm not the best of readers Embarassed but something by Ben would be a very interesting read, he's done so much in his life :study:

Jst checked on Amazon. Available on 30th August but only in hardback. I'm going to wait for it in paperback, easier for planes and trains cheers

I didn't think to check Amazon Lai Embarassed glad you did. I'm in a quandary now as to what to do, paper backs are easier but I do love hardback books. I don't really do many train journeys or plane trips either so have I just talked myself into a hardback Very Happy

I've never been a big fan of Ben Fogle, not sure why, although I was'nt really impressed with him on the Longleat TV Series,though on the one or two programes I've seen him in since I've enjoyed.

Sorry the bit about Longleat did'nt appear

WOW that is some challenge Doogs but I have no doubt that he will do it, he is one heck of a guy. Not a swim I would like to do, not that I could swim that far but it also sounds quite scary.

Good Luck Ben

I Agree LW it certainly is and also not something I would fancy doing No Ben is so gutsy and tenacious though, I'm sure he's going to rise to the occasion yet again cheers

I have no doubt about it Doogs, he is one of those guys that is an achiever and as he says himself, it's what he is good at, so fingers crossed it all goes well for him
