Overview

You look straight ahead. You try to breathe normally. You can smell the scent of the huge cat that is staring back. You are a cameraman. He is the King of Beasts. Your only thought is "I hope he has eaten today."

Let National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert bring you closer to the power and majesty of the regal African lion. With fewer than 25,000 wild lions now left on Earth, the authors make a passionate plea to young readers to take an active role in securing a future for these magnificent creatures.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Well known for their documentaries and books on African wildlife for adults, the Jouberts here offer younger readers examples from their years of experience studying, filming and photographing lions in Botswana. Opening with a description of a face-to-face encounter with a charging male lion, they go on to explain where lions live, their family structure and their place in their world as hunters. Sidebars add information about looking for and living with lions, and the authors wrap up with observations about the species' future. As is customary in the series, the book concludes with a page of suggestions for reader actions and further study, facts at a glance and research and photographic notes. The topic is sure to appeal to young animal lovers who will ignore the repetition in early pages to admire these fabulous beasts close-up and in action in the Jouberts' own striking color photographs.

Beverly and Dereck have written an awesome book about the Lions of Africa and their plight. I would wish that everyone would read this book and watch the movie to see how beautiful Africa is and how important it is for the wildlife that live there; it needs our protection so that we can have it to visit and enjoy.
