Product Overview

"This is brilliant stuff---patient observation and lucid writing full of the wonder of living among wild animals."---Orion

"Full of fascinating observations and eminently dependable information---terrific!"---Peter Matthiessen

Since the 1950s, eminent field biologist George Schaller has roamed through many lands observing wild animals and conducting landmark long-term studies that have deepened our understanding of these creatures. He has reported and reflected on his work in classic, much-acclaimed books, including The Last Panda and National Book Award winner The Serengeti Lion.

This collection of short pieces is the first and only overview of Schaller's remarkable career. Chapters describe stalking tigers in India and jaguars in Brazil's Pantanal swamps, studying mountain gorillas in Rwanda and predator-prey relations in the Serengeti, tracking new species on the wild border of Vietnam and Laos, searching for snow leopards in the Hindu Kush, and Schaller's groundbreaking work with giant pandas in Sichuan. Later accounts focus on his campaigns to protect threatened habitats. The author's own photographs appear throughout: of animals and their behavior and of himself and his family "at home" in wild places from Africa to Tibet.
