An Encounter with the White-Headed Langurs is a work that combines artistic photography and natural popular science. The book contains more than one hundred clear photographs, which artistically record the various lives of the white-headed langur population as it grows freely in the rocky forest of the karst landscape within the White-Headed Langur National Nature Reserve, southern China. With easy-to-understand descriptions, it shows the living environment and survival of this little-known globally endangered species. The visual impact of the scenes and photos appeal to readers to pay attention to and protect this endangered species.
