About this book

Language: French

Some species enjoy an almost legendary status among naturalists. The Shoebill, with its profile reminiscent of prehistoric creatures, is one such example. The author spent 33 months over 6 expeditions exploring the swamps of Botswana and Zambia. Her first encounter with the mythical bird took place in the Republic of Central Africa, where it is not endemic.

The resulting large-format book combines arresting photography with travelogue, punctuated by careful scientific notes and observations, which will contribute to knowledge of the Shoebill. The book also represents a plea to preserve the region's fragile ecosystems.

The book has been awarded the Prix des Explorateurs Thomas Allix and the Prix Francois Sommer.
