Great Cats: Stories and Art From a World Travellerby Simon Combes, Workman Pub. Co. Greenwich Pr Ltd, Judy Turziano (Designed by)
Adventurer, artist and author Simon Combes embarks on the greatest adventure of his lifetime: a search for nine great cats of the world. His goal: to research, locate and ultimately paint each cat in the glory of its natural habitat. In a sometimes hair-raising, sometimes hysterical account of his voyages over three years on three continents, Combes captures--in stories, paintings and photos--the drama of these nine mysterious and largely elusive species of the cat family, and the humans that cherish, and also threaten them. The nine cats are the cougar, jaguar, Siberian tiger, lion, clouded leopard, cheetah, Bengal tiger, African leopard and snow leopard. Combes' first illustrated book, An African Experience, has 50,000 copies in print. Full color throughout; paintings, photographs and sketches.
