River Monsters: a tale of obsession, adventure, and very big fish

Jeremy Wade, host of Animal Planet’s smash hit River Monsters, has spent a lifetime in search of legendary creatures. Now, go with Wade beneath the depths, into the world where monsters really do exist – and discover what it takes to find and capture them.

In the tradition of the most gripping adventure writing, River Monsters shows that there’s more to this world than what’s visible on the surface. As Wade says, with a fishing line anything is possible – sometimes it can even reveal the future, or at least one possible version of it. In similar fashion, Wade’s writings are much more than exhilarating stories: they reveal a vision of the world more awe-inspiring than any individual myth made flesh. Ultimately, River Monsters explores the real mysteries that still exist, capturing the story of one man’s obsession – and his relentless pursuit of the truth.

 

Jeremy Wade is a writer and TV presenter with a special interest in rivers and freshwater fish, who has been travelling (mostly solo) to the world’s remoter rivers for over 25 years.

He has a degree in zoology from Bristol University and a postgrad teaching certificate in biological sciences from the University of Kent, and has worked as a secondary school biology teacher.

He grew up in south-east England, on the banks of the Suffolk Stour, where his fascination with the underwater world began – and the desire to always see “what’s around the next bend”. His first overseas trip was to the mountain rivers of India in 1982, and since then he has increasingly spent his time tracking down large and little-known fish in rivers around the world – particularly in the Congo and Amazon rainforests.
