Wildlife in Pictures

Wildlife in Pictures is a wildlife photographic coffee table book from the unique perspective of a conservationist and safari guide. It is the result of thousands of hours in the field, drawing upon intimate knowledge of the subject area and species, and an earnest commitment to the preservation of wilderness.

In 320 pages the book leads the reader on a journey through the grasslands, forests, mountains, deserts, rivers and coastlines of Africa and India, pairing spectacular images of animals and natural landscapes with fascinating stories and written insight to add new meaning to these striking photographs. The book includes many rare images from Gabon, in equatorial west Africa, revealing subjects and areas scarcely seen by outside eyes.

The book is unique in the way it brings together diverse images of the highest quality with writing that is both engagingly personal and scientifically erudite. The author reveals a deeper understanding of the life of a conservationist in the field. The unique behind-the-scenes insights include eloquently written passages detailing lessons learned from an surprising friendship with the author’s Shangaan mentor and tracker, as well as candid perspectives on the real challenges and opportunities of conservation and ecotourism.

Wildlife in Pictures will appeal not only to those who admire nature’s beauty, but also to those who seek a deeper understanding that is both warmly human and scientifically insightful.
