The Panda’s Tale:

Journeys in search of the wild heart of China

Nigel’s first, and so far only, e-book, the Panda’s Tale is a travelogue about his many travels through the length and breadth of China, shooting for a project on the country’s natural history.

These trips took place in the 1990s, a time when China was just starting to open its doors to the world, on the threshold of its meteoric economic growth. As a result, this e-book chronicles the state of China - as experienced by Nigel - at a critical moment in its modern history.

Nigel’s text is richly illustrated with over 300 of his photos.
