From the Back Cover
In 1974 Mark and Delia Owens, two young American scientists, auctioned off everything they owned and travelled to Africa. They were determined to study the great carnivores before lack of conservation policies led to the final destruction of African wildlife. 'Cry of the Kalahari' is the story of their seven years with lions, brown hyenas, jackals, birds, shrews, lizards and the many other creatures they came to know; it tells how they survived and conducted research in one of the last and largest pristine areas on earth.
"As exciting a book about African wildlife as ever you have read"
JOHN HILLABY/ HAM AND HIGH
"It is another 'Born Free'"
"For anyone interested in animals or in real life adventure, for anyone fascinated by the desert, its harsh cruelty punctuated by spells of green beauty, this book is a must. It provides unique, enthralling and extremely significant insights into the behaviour of the lions and other carnivores of the Kalahari"
