Praise

“books of adventure are so numerous….[But] this one is unique. It has the human quality of a novel and the permanence of social history.” —Katherine Woods, The New York Times



“Tells the whole story unaffectedly and with a simple charm that is highly engaging. It belongs on any list of Americana, for the Johnsons were as American as Davy Crockett.” —Joseph Wood Krutch, The Nation



“A pleasant, forthright…exciting book.” —Clifton Fadiman, The New Yorker“It makes good reading…at this dark hour, as good an ‘escape story’ as you are apt to run into for some time.” —Atlantic Monthly



“I MARRIED ADVENTURE is a fine book on many counts…A good travel book, a good adventure book, a good book about animals, a good book on photography, and , best of all…a good human story about two extremely likable people, told by one of them with simplicity, humor, [and] warmth.” —Rose Feld, Books



“It isn’t just the animal-lover who will cherish this story. Anyone who likes a thrilling tale (a true one, too) with a plucky, nervy, cheerful, and charming hero and heroine is all set. I MARRIED ADVENTURE is as rare and real as the people who made it possible.”—Olga Owens, Boston Transcript



“The reader is impressed with the tremendous industriousness of these two people, their physical endurance, their patience, their understanding of animals and natives, and their love for each other….[The] old and young will enjoy this book. It is splendidly illustrated.” —M.N. Baker, Library Journal



“Every page of her book is readable and exciting: the photographs are plentiful and have all the dramatic quality that we are used to in the camera work of the author and her husband.” —Manchester Guardian
