The Art of Being a Lionby Christine Denis-Huot, Michel Denis-Huot
Immortalized in legend and celebrated through the centuries, the King of Beasts has fascinated man since it stalked through Europe in prehistoric times. A universal symbol of power, the lion is renowned for its flamboyant mane, noble aspect, terrifying roar, and unsurpassed sexual stamina. Journey into the world of this revered and feared big cat through these spectacular color images. Stand on the searing savannah alongside one of these imposing creatures as it looks down with disdain on other species as so many possible prey. Witness his contradictory nature as he fiercely defends his family and territory, then later lowers himself to petty thievery and carrion scrounging. All the while, the females bring up their cubs collectively and handle the hunting duties. The complexity of this endangered society, which can now be found only in the wildlife parks and sanctuaries of East Africa, is captured here in candid, breathtaking detail.
