By: Sarah Powdermaker
230 pages, Col illus
Aimed at inspiring a love of wildlife in anyone who picks it up, this book is the result of Sara Clark Powdermaker's 18 years living in Africa, spending months on end in wildlife parks, especially in Kenya, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. During her time there she observed the animals and avidly absorbed information from the guides as well as from books and periodicals. The intent of this book is to whet readers' interest in learning more about African wildlife in the hope that it will lead to a greater appreciation of this unique environment, and ultimately to its preservation. Although not all species could be included, most of the best known mammals are mentioned.
This fascinating book includes 52 articles with summary verses and beautiful illustrations by Pam Carr, offering an accurate and heartfelt picture of the richness of African wildlife.
"I'm very favorably impressed with the writings and the content. The author has included a surprising amount of information briefly and entertainingly."
- Richard D. Estes, author, Behavior Guide to African Mammals
