Product Description


A photographic delight: the author of this volume looks at animals in South and East Africa from up close and shows us their emotions: the sadness of mourning elephants, the tenderness of lions, the glee of skipping zebra foals, and the many shades of rage that transform the face of tiger. Short, tothe- point texts offer a course in behavioral psychology, from how wild animals form friendships to the ways they express happiness, affection, envy, and anxiety. The internationally renowned and awarded photographer offers an important contribution to understanding Africa's wildlife and why its animals must be protected. 200 colour illustrations Photographer and Sales on ai out back

Being a lover of animals and wild life, I found the whole book not only captivating, but compelling.
Gabriella Stabler's work is exceptional, as I highly recommend this book for anyone studying psychology, social work or veterinary medicine.
I would also mention that this book is a gift to the heart of every human being, as we relate to one another,while the book is artistically explained through the behavior of animals, being exact in nature to that of human beings.
Being able to see that animals have identical feelings and emotions to that of humans, makes you stop and think about how we are living and treating each other in this lifetime.
Extremely well done book. 12 Oct. 2014

Artistically beautifully photography, accompanied by wise and insighful (short) text that accompany each photograph. The book is a real treasure of art and emotion.
