This beautifully woven photographic essay paints a picture of one man's journey through Mongolia in search of the elusive snow leopard. Not only does the reader learn of the snow leopard itself, but also of the Mongolian people and culture, the landscape, and other animals involved in their ecosystem. The pictures make the words of the text resonate off the page to provide an intimate look into the world of the snow leopard and the Mongolian people. In particular, this book follows the tracks of two previously studied snow leopards named Blue and Yellow, including individual pictures of each.
