About the author:
Paul Rosolie is a naturalist, explorer, author, and award winning wildlife filmmaker. His short film An Unseen World won the UN Forum on Forests 2013 short films award, and has been described as ‘nature filmmaking at its most raw and innovative”.
Specializing in tropical rain forests, his work has taken him to place like Borneo, India, Brazil, and Peru. In the Amazon he has traveled with poachers into deep jungle to document the black market trade in endangered species, researched giant anacondas, raised an orphaned giant anteater by hand, and explored a previously undocumented ecosystem that has come to be called the ‘floating forest’. He spends extended periods in solitude, paddling his raft in remote corners of the jungle, filming, writing, and observing wildlife.
His book book Mother of God has gained the praise of environmentalists and adventurers such as Jane Goodall, Bear Grylls, and Bill McKibben who have called the book a “gripping”, “awe inspiring”, “rousing tale”, “with a great and enduring point”.
Later after further years of conservation work in Peru as well as India, Paul released in 2019 his second book, a literary fiction novel called The Girl and the Tiger. The book is based on the true story of an Indian girl who contacted Paul after finding three abandoned tiger cubs.
