Jan Latta is one of Australia’s most acclaimed wildlife photographers and author of the renowned "True to Life" series of children’s books on endangered animals. She’s known as ‘The voice of the animals!’

While the words ‘elegant, adventurous and expressive with a gentle demeanour’ have often been used to describe the blonde beauty, who’s now in her eighties, don’t let that fool you – Jan Latta is one tough cookie! Her words will inspire you.

"Doing It My Way" is an honest, warm and humorous account of how Jan finally found her true calling through a chance encounter with a Mountain Gorilla in Rwanda that changed her life and career.
