About this book

A symbol of mythic potency, the African lion has ruled the human imagination for millennia. But in Botswana's Okavango Delta, the world's most awe-inspiring hunters are challenged not only by their waterlogged territory, but also by their formidable prey - the buffalo - who wield their massive horns with deadly accuracy. Pulsing with ancient rhythms of wild Africa, this harsh and eternal struggle is compelling, powerful, and poignant. Award-winning filmmakers Beverly and Dereck Joubert, give us a glimpse of this iconic drama and warn that due to declining numbers of lions in the wild, it may soon end forever.
