'For ten years, with barely a day off duty, William Evans lived on the heels of Lord Louis - sometimes literally, as when he held on to the great man's feet as he filmed over the edge of a live volcano, or seized his shirt tail to stop him toppling into the jaws of a giant hippo in the Zambezi river! From this unique viewpoint, he offers a glimpse that the biographers cannot give - of a man who was both hero and indomitable task master, capable of inspiring, simultaneously, extreme irritation and undying loyalty, a man who was always larger than life, one of the last truly Great Men of our time.'
