The Siamese Tiger, The Temple Terrapin, The Goral, etc. These are rare animals not ubiquitous in even the best series of National Geographic or other tantamount nature programs. Gerald Cubitt takes you into the mysterious world of Thailand's inner jungles, while Belinda Stewart-Cox does a marvelous job in supporting each photograph with relevant descriptive information. As a Thai, I was not even cognizant of much of the pictorial information provided by this book. It is definitely a must for anyone interested in endangered species, exotic landscapes, or the rare and exotic in general.

Though over half of this "coffee table" book consists of excellent photographs of Thailand and its wildlife and habitats, the rest is well-written and informative narrative text introducing the reader to the wildlife and wild places of Thailand, as well as discussion of humans and their impact on the environment. There's also extensive and fascinating discussion of the history of the conservation movement in Thailand. The last half of the book is broken into regional discussion, which includes a few paragraphs on, and photos from, the more well-known national parks and other biodiversity hotspots. Highly recommended to visitors seeking a rich overview of Thailand's natural environment.

This is a GOOD book! As the front of the book might imply to you, the book is full of color photographs (over 400) of wildlife of Thailand. Not only that, there is some great scenery in the book. (Thailand is a part of Southeast Asia.) One of my favorite photos in the book is the King Cobra--able to kill a five-ton elephant in ONE SINGLE BITE--and which can grow to 18 feet or MORE! There are at least 27,000 flower species as well--and 900 bird species! Definitely a good wildlife book!
