About this book

After the huge success of his previous collection of photographs, The Living Wild, Wolfe turns his attention to Africa. In five photographic essays, the lives of the savannah, the woodlands, the rainforest, the wetlands and the desert rise before the reader's eyes.
`The intensity, texture, and strange density of Art Wolfe's photographs are truly astonishing.' Peter Matthiessen
`Art Wolfe's photographs are magically composed and stunningly beautiful. Like nature poetry of the first rank, they pull our emotions closer to some of the most charismatic and (sadly) endangered animal species of the world.' E.O. Wilson
