Ray’s expedition into France’s vast and unspoiled natural areas takes him to the Camargue region in the south of the country where the freshwater Rhone meets the salty Mediterranean sea. It’s also where the region’s cattle are reared by French cowboys, who treat Ray to the Gallic version of bullfighting, where nimble-footed young men attempt to retrieve cloth hoops from a bull. Ray saves the best for last when he joins ornithologist Frederick Bouvet to witness 10,000 pairs of flamingos gathering on the saltwater beds of the Camargue.
