About this book

Since 1900, the number of cheetahs has plummeted from more than 100,000 to fewer than 10,000. At the Cheetah Conservation Fund's (CCF) African headquarters in Namibia, Laurie Marker and her team work to save these stunning creatures from extinction. They've rescued more than 900 cheetahs, most of whom have been returned to the wild.

Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop join CCF to study the cheetah's ecological, genetic, and behavioral patterns in order to save the fastest animal on land – before it is too late.

Media reviews

"Bishop's stunning cheetah photographs will draw readers into this appealing and balanced picture of a conservationist at work."
Kirkus, starred review

"Striking photographs of the cheetahs, the people and landscape of Namibia, and the conservationists fully capture the dedication of these scientists, and the awesome power of the cheetahs."
Horn Book Magazine

"Bishop's extreme closeups can't capture the cheetahs' blinding speed, but the cats' movie-star glamour is on prominent display, especially in a few breathtaking extreme closeups."
Bulletin

"Along with sharp views of the facility's experts and student volunteers working with cheetahs and taking general wildlife counts, Bishop provides plenty of stunning cheetah photography – both full-body and head shots – to beautifully complement Montgomery's detailed descriptions of daily routines, research projects, and medical procedures."
Booklist

"This is a readable, informative and elegant book on an equally elegant feline."
School Library Journal, starred review
