In 1985, nature decreed that the mother of five tiny cheetah cubs would not survive to bring up her family. Too young to care for themselves the cubs would certainly die of starvation without human intervention. Enter David Drummond...
It was Drummond's trust and close association with Petal that the adventures of the naturally timid wild free-range cheetahs of the North Mara, including those cheetah mothers which Petal introduced to him, can now be filmed and photographed at close quarters. Living free, without fear of becoming domesticated in their natural environment, the pressure on the wild cheetahs' life style and their natural fear of humans was overcome. They came to understand whom to trust and who their human enemies were.
Cheetahs are perhaps, not only the most beautiful, but also the most mysterious of the big cats. David Drummond possesses that rare ability of earning the trust of a wild creature, and whose long and intimate relationship with the cheetahs of the Masai Mara is now graphically described in this book Dr Daphne Sheldrick MBE MBS
