Brian Dawtrey with his wife and three children spent twenty four years working in the Overseas Aid programme in Africa.
Brian was an Honorary Wildlife Ranger and a onetime Chairman of the Wildlife Conservation Society of Zambia, in addition to his normal duties.
Brian loves the natural world which led him to feel sympathy for the ostriches that have to eek-out a living in desert environments. His imagination led him to visualize a holiday for an ostrich, with his grandchildren, in England's `green and pleasant land'.
Brian has published three biographical books in his series headed Wild Africa, and Life At Home Farm.
