Item description for Safari in Wildest Africa by Michel Denis-Huot...
Among the sunburned yellow grass of the savannah, two lion cubs play under the indolent gaze of their father, while a short distance away, a pack of hyenas fights over a gazelle carcass. Presenting a realistic, unflinching look at life on the African savannah, this fascinating volume from acclaimed naturalists Christine and Michel Denis-Huot reveals the many faces of this beautiful and challenging habitat. Capturing moments of peaceful harmony and episodes of harsh reality, these exceptional images offer readers a uniquely personal, up-close perspective on life in one of the most intriguing and complex habitats in the world. The Denis-Huots bring to this book the same depth of information and sense of respect and admiration for African wildlife that made their recent publication, Lords of the Savannah, so compelling. With their firsthand knowledge of the African savannah and ability to capture on film moments we would never ordinarily witness, they are uniquely equipped to chronicle the circle of life in a truly wild world. Accompanying hundreds of photographs, the engaging text provides the latest finding on the habits and habitats of the denizens of the savannah, and expresses the authors' fascination with life in wildest Africa.
The husband and wife team of Christine and Michel Denis-Huot first met in Tanzania in 1985. Since then, they have collaborated on a number of articles and books on African wildlife, with Michel taking the photographs and Christine writing the text. Their work on the hippopotamus and the gnu won them the World Press award.
