Overview

Unforgettable images of the natural world by a best-selling photographer that will delight and inform.

A snow monkey emerges from a hot spring. A Camargue horse streaks through a marsh in a blur of movement. Brown bears from Alaska wait in a waterfall for sockeye salmon. Scarlet and blue-yellow macaws sweep across the Peruvian sky. Red-crowned cranes gather to feed in snow-covered Japanese marshland. A bright-eyed baby sifaka clings to its mother as she hops along in Madagascar sunlight. A bottlenose dolphin skims over Honduran waters at breathtaking speed...

At first fired by curiosity, Steve Bloom's photographic explorations of the natural world were soon imbued with a fierce urgency as the full force of man's destruction of the environment and its creatures was revealed to him. His goal has been to search for the spirit of the world's wildlife, from the tiger's eyes gleaming brightly in the jungles of India to polar bear cubs seeing the world for the first time to the few mountain gorillas left in Africa. The result embodies nature's choreography, an intimate exploration that reveals not only the animals but much that is new about ourselves.

Accompanied by his own commentaries, as passionate as they are informed, and thought-provoking quotes from Mahatma Gandhi, Gerald Durrell, Emily Dickinson, and others, Spirit of the Wild brings to the fore the common experiences of all living creatures. 60+ color photographs.
