Product description


Sara Evans documents the rise and fall of the lion in intimate detail; nothing misses her perceptive gaze. She does not judge, and is content to simply unearth the facts.

When the Last Lion Roars is a plea on behalf of the natural world, with the lion as her witness. It is an eloquent story of despair and hope - a stark reminder that nothing is sacred in a world of rampant population growth and vanishing wild spaces.

(The Big Cat People Jonathan and Angela Scott)

A hugely thorough overview concerning lions and their imminent disappearance from the natural world. Sara Evans shows where we stand after the global outrage over the killing of Cecil, and nurses a faint ember of hope for the continued survival of the king of beasts. (Dr Ross Barnett)

Heart-breaking, thought-provoking and a thoroughly essential read. (Simone Brookes Discover Animals)

Sara Evans does a masterful job of guiding the reader through the fascinating history of the lion, right from its early predecessor, the prehistoric cave lion, all the way through to present day. (Niki Rust British Ecological Society)

Peppered with personal accounts of observing lions both in the wild and captivity, the author brings this species to life in beautiful, page-turning prose. (Niki Rust British Ecological Society)

The book concludes with a positive story of hope on how we can help secure this species' future and the amazing people that are dedicating their lives to ensuring that lions will be around for many generations to come. (Niki Rust British Ecological Society)

Written in an engaging and accessible manner and including cutting-edge research on the species. (Niki Rust British Ecological Society)
