Product Description Two Emmy Award-winning naturalists and cinematographers who have lived among the lions of Botswana for thirteen years present a book of astonishing photographs and text about the wild cats' nocturnal world, capturing their ferocious nighttime kills. From Library Journal This book is the spectacular culmination of over 20 years' work by the Jouberts, who have won numerous awards and honors for their documentary films. In the late 1970s, they began an intense study of lions in the Savuti (an area of approximately 200 square miles that is part of the Chobe National Park in Botswana). Adventuresome in spirit, the Jouberts tackled the additional challenge of observing and documenting lion behavior at night, noticing several differences in behavior from the more traditional East Africa lion studies. Male lions, for example, participate in kills rather than scavenging off the kills of lionesses. They also documented the ongoing and forceful battles between lions and hyenas. Their book is breathtakingly illustrated with only a small number of photos they have taken over the years. Readers will come away with a new appreciation for rapidly disappearing wilderness areas and the wild creatures that inhabit them. Highly recommended.?Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., Wis.
