Overview

Breathtaking and as grandly sized as the countryside and wildlife it captures, every outstanding page in this collection of photographs will leave you completely awestruck by the magnificence of nature. Beginning with the African environment, it first covers the changing landscape, climate, vegetation, and protected national parks and reserves, all so crucial to animals' survival—like the lioness, head lowered and eyes gleaming, clearly on the hunt for food, or the male bush elephant marching across the dry savanna (with Kilimanjaro looming in the background). Truly spectacular shots show lightning streaking across stormy skies, gigantic rifts in the earth, and glorious Victoria Falls. Then, traveling through the different African countries and regions, they go close-up on hundreds of remarkable creatures: a beautiful leopard calmly resting, bathed in the orange glow of the sun; a mountain gorilla playing amid foliage; the jet-black Verreaux's eagle, ready to soar; a hippo, it's huge mouth opened wide; the elusive pygmy crocodile; a graceful spotted bushbuck; and so many others. A richly visual and informative portrait of a continent filled with wonders. 9 X 12. 512 Color Pages

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If you want to go on safari from the comforts of your favorite lounge chair, then this is the book to take you there. Coppard, a book editor and author, has drawn together exceptional photos of the African landscape and its flora and fauna. Every page is covered with breathtaking pictures that illustrate the diverse and abundant animals that populate the African continent. Part 1 covers the changing landscape, climate, natural vegetation, and national parks and reserves. In Part 2, Coppard groups the animals by classification: hoofed mammals, elephants, carnivores, primates, reptiles, and birds. There is an extensive index, which aids the reader in finding specific species. While the photos are the main thrust of this oversized pictorial, the text provides just enough information to whet the reader's appetite for more thorough resources. Anyone contemplating a trip to Africa will be excited at the prospect of seeing these incredible sights in person. Those who have been already will enjoy the memories the photos are bound to bring to mind. Highly recommended where nature and travel books are popular or for nature photography collections. Edell M. Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., WI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
