About this book

Language: Spanish

The cougar was the inspiration for this extraordinary journey through mountains, glaciers, forests, oceans, jungles and deserts. Fifteen months of route across continents in search of seven animals in danger of extinction. Andoni Canela's challenge was to find and photograph the cougar, but also the Iberian wolf, the bison, the gentoo, the marine crocodile, the bicorne hornbill and the African elephant. Canela also made this an unusual kind of adventure: he was accompanied by his partner, writer Meritxell Margarit, and their two children, nine and three years. The daily experiences with wild animals are mixed with stories of travel and the growth of their children.

Summary in Spanish:
El puma es el origen de un viaje extraordinario por montañas, glaciares, bosques, mares, selvas y desiertos. Quince meses de ruta por todos los continentes en busca de siete animales en peligro de extinción. El reto de Andoni Canela será encontrar y fotografiar al puma, pero también al lobo ibérico, al bisonte americano, al pingüino papúa, al cocodrilo marino, al cálao bicorne y al elefante africano. Canela, además, plantea algo poco habitual en este tipo de aventuras: que le acompañe su pareja, la escritora Meritxell Margarit, y sus dos hijos, de nueve y tres años. Las experiencias diarias junto a los animales salvajes se mezclan con las historias del viaje y el crecimiento de los niños.
