With a dramatic first-person narrative and close-up photos that brings kids into the thick of the action, National Geographic photographer Robert B. Haas gives us a rare glimpse into the struggles for survival in the African wilderness.
We go with him in his jeep, camera primed and ready to react. We wait patiently to spot leopard cubs coming out of their cave to play; we are charged by protective adult elephants who surround a new-born; we move side-by-side with a clan of wild dogs as they hunt impalas.
This beautiful and inviting book draws readers into Haas's passion for Africa, for conservation, and for finding harmony between the actions of humans and the survival of wild animals.
Robert B. Haas has traveled extensively throughout Africa, photographing animals from the ground and from the air.
His work has appeared in National Geographic magazine and has been featured in his National Geographic books Through the Eyes of the Gods: An Aerial Vision of Africa and Through the Eyes of the Condor: An Aerial Vision of Latin America,.
