About this book

Award-winning author-photographer Boyd Norton draws upon his extensive experiences and photographs of the Serengeti ecosystem, including the Serengeti National Park, Kenya's Masai Mara, and Ngorongoro Crater. Using thrilling firsthand accounts and experiences, Serengeti: The Eternal Beginning captures the history, people, animals, and the great migration that makes this one of the most fascinating and special places in the world. Norton, world renowned as both a photographer and wilderness activist, highlights the preservation of the Serengeti while his vibrant and compelling photographs transport readers to the mystical and magical Serengeti.

"Boyd Norton has captured the magic of this ancient and majestic ecosystem."
- Dr. Jane Goodall

"Preserving the Serengeti is as much about saving our humanity, our link to nature and our own ancient past, as it is about stopping an environmental tragedy. Boyd's book Serengeti covers it all very well."
- Richard Engel, Chief Foreign Correspondent, NBC News.

"What manner of insanity would lead us to destroy our own cradle. That is the Serengeti. And its richness and wonder are under great threat. Boyd Norton's book, Serengeti, shows us this magical land in all its splendor, and demonstrates how we might better know it and preserve it".
- Ed Begley, Jr., actor, eco-activist

"Boyd Norton's exquisite images of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro shock us back into East Africa's 'eternal beginnings,' its thundering migrations, and the nourishment of its stillness. This book is a gift, a piece of hope. Grab it now."
- Gretel Ehrlich, Author of The Solace of Open Spaces

"A pictorial and poetic tour de force."
- Kathi Anderson, Executive Director, Walden Woods Project, The Thoreau Institute
