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.

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.
