About the Author
Writer and broadcaster Simon Chapman is a self-confessed jungle addict, making expeditions whenever he can. His travels have taken him to tropical forests all over the world, from Borneo and Irian Jaya to the Amazon. The story of his search for a mythical Giant Ape in the Bolivian rainforest, The Monster of the Madidi, was published in 2001. He has also had numerous articles and illustrations published in magazines in Britain and the US, including Wanderlust, BBC Wildlife and South American Explorer, has written and recorded for BBC Radio 4, and lectured on the organisation of jungle expeditions at the Royal Geographical Society, of which he is a fellow. When not exploring, Simon lives with his wife and his two young children in Lancaster where he teaches physics in a high school.
