About this book

An award-winning intensive study based on three years' field study in the Serengeti National Park. It describes the impact of the lion and other predators on the vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. It also gives details on the social interactions, population dynamics and predation patterns of the lion.

This book conveys not only the fascination of its particular study of lion behavior but the drama and wonder and beauty of the intimate interdependence of all living things. - Saturday Review "If you have only enough time to read one book about field biology, this is the one I recommend." - Edward O. Wilson, Science "This is an important book, not just for its valuable information on lions, but for its broad, open, and intelligent approach to problems that cut across the fields of behavior, populations, ecology, wildlife management, evolution, anthropology, and comparative biology." - Richard G. Van Gelder, Bioscience "By the time the reader has finished this book, the Serengeti, its landscapes, seasons, and wildlife, takes shape in the mind as a complex and epic poem, each part a function of every other part and each part a function of the whole." - George Stade, New York Times Book Review"
