Product Description

Review

"Cheetahs are perhaps, not only the most beautiful, but also the most mysterious of the big cats. David Drummond possesses that rare ability of earning the trust of a wild creature, and whose long and intimate relationship with the cheetahs of the Masai Mara is now graphically described in this book" Dr Daphne Sheldrick MBE MBS

If ever there was a book, to show people how we should treat the world and the animals that inhabit it, then this is it. Before you a story of compassion and mutual respect unfolds, between man and beast. Illustrated with beautiful and sometimes personnel photos, we are reminded of a world where very few of us will ever tread, but where we probably all started. This book reminds us that the earth is very much shared, and not owned by us, and that we are lucky when the animal world shares something with us.

The story of a man, (Captain Drummond )and his remarkable relationship with a group of Cheetah cubs, raised by him on the plains of the Maasai Mara. His bond with the female (Queen) in particular a heart warming story of man and beast, which to my mind is a way forward for the conversation of the Cheetah.

The Captain has proved beyond doubt, it is possible to return wild born Cheetah cubs to their natural habitat. Thereby, opening up another strand in the long term survival of this beautiful species.

This book should be read by all of you Africa, and wildlife lovers.

P.S. This is one occasion seeing spots before your eyes is good for your health

I am not a great reader at the best of times. However, once I had started to read this book I could not put it down. If you love wildlife, this is the book for you. The story will touch your heart so much so you cannot imagine anyone ever leaving this incredible place.
