Recording incredible wildlife behavior on movie film and video is the hallmark of Bob Landis’ films. He has filmed wildlife in Yellowstone for over 40 years – a place dear to his soul. This book is comprised of two stories wound into one: a depiction of days afield with a wildlife cinematographer who has filmed and co-produced stories about Yellowstone’s iconic species – the bear, the wolf, the bison – films that have aired on PBS, Nature and on National Geographic Television. This book also is a collection of flashbacks to Landis’ past – growing up as a small-town Wisconsin boy where he followed his destiny to become a football player, teacher, diehard Green Bay Packers fan, and wildlife filmmaker. He has created more than 20 wildlife films, many of them winning awards and airing on television around the world. Bob Landis is one of America’s premier wildlife filmmakers.
