"From September to August, it is a journal of breathless journeys an quiet contemplation, of hawk-eyed observation and energetic pursuit, all in the name of Nature's glories at home and abroad.

It is a diary that takes us to spectacular destinations and once-in-a-lifetime experiences all over the globe, bringing us face to face with such creatures as the human-face spider of Taiwan, the gorillas of Uganda, the dragon of Komodo and the grizzly bear of Alaska. Not to mention a myriad of birds and plants.

With photographs by Steve Phillips and the author himself, Wild About the Wild features the flora and fauna encountered by Iolo during the year, documenting vividly the changing sights of each season. It even allows us the odd peep into the Williams household, where an enthusiastic concern for the natural world is, as one might expect, compulsory!

What is more, it is an honest diary."
