5.0 out of 5 stars Their Eyes Shine at You 25 Nov 2007
By Paul Sacia - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I collect African wildlife books and this one is the best because this superb photographer captures the glint in the eyes of these gorgeous animals. The character of each individual animal makes this book one to keep within reach for creative inspiration. I love the ways color, line, shape, form, and movement gallop and graze and lull across each page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating for children (and adults) 25 Aug 2010
By C.T. - Published on
I bought this book as a gift for a young child who loves African animals. I specifically searched for a book that had many glossy photographs of African animals, and that had more pictures than words. This one is just that. The pages contain mostly pictures with captains and some actual paragraphs, but that is minimal. The pictures are very captivating, beautiful, and in no way inappropriate for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous introduction for any interested in Africa's natural wonders 15 Dec 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
For a coffee-table photo guide to African wildlife, you can't go wrong with Gerald Hinde's stunning display. It surveys the range of the continent's wildlife, offering a blend of aerial and close-up ground shots of different species and adding notes about their natural history and habitats. A gorgeous introduction for any interested in Africa's natural wonders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proudly South Africa 27 July 2008
By Roger Gelfand - Published on
To be able to produce work such as Gerald Hinde has, one should understand the preparation and patience needed. A single image can be days in the making! Glancing through his book , 'African Wildlife', I manage to 'know' the artist and recognize the love he has for his work and the beautiful animals that he has captured on film. The photography shown is amazing, the editing and presentation are excellent, as is the quality of the printing, done by Struik Publishers in South Africa. I highly recommend this book for all who enjoy excellent photography and wildlife.
