275. I Married Adventure The Lives and Adventure of Martin and Osa Johnson, by Osa Johnson (read 15 Aug 1946) I believe I liked this book, but my life and politics were taking up all my diary entries and on Aug 15 I merely noted: "Read book." ( )
The story of a married couple who were friends with Jack London who were pioneers in photographing and later filming wild life in Africa
at the turn of the 19th. century.
A CLASSIC MEMOIR OF TWO PIONEERING ADVENTURERS Before Joy Adamson went to Africa, before Margaret Mead sailed to Samoa, before Dian Fossey was even born, a Kansas teenager named Osa Leighty married Martin Johnson, a pioneering photographer just back from a 'round-the-world cruise with Jack London. Together the Johnsons flew and sailed to Borneo, to Kenya, and to the Congo, filming Simba and other popular nature movies with Martin behind the camera and Osa holding her rifle at the ready in case the scene's big game star should turn hostile. This bestselling memoir retraces their careers in rich detail, with precisely observed descriptions and often heart-stopping anecdotes. Illustrated with scores of the dramatic photos that made the Johnsons famous, it's a book sure to delight every lover of true adventure.
