Format: Paperback
This book is a superb introduction to the wildlife of Africa. What Mr. Carnaby does incredibly well in this work is bring the mammals to life with all sorts of captivating anecdotes, insight into animal behavior, and breath-taking photos. We have lots of field guides to the animal life of Africa, some good and some mediocre, but none are terribly interesting. This book is fascinating from front to back, and highly recommended for anyone really interested in the wildlife of this incredibly continent.

Format: Paperback
This is a textbook, but it's highly unusual. Most textbooks are very general- giving a summary of a topic, instead Carnaby answers specific questions about the mammals of Southern Africa, which is clearly based on his intimate experiences with these animals. I collect zoology textbooks and this one of my all-time favorites. It's subject is obviously very specific, but a lot of the information explains concepts of biology using these animals as examples, and helps you think in a problem-solving way when observing any animals.
