"Jonathan Scott understands the animals he photographs so well that it is as though he has entered their minds and can see the world as they do." David Attenborough "I have just turned the final page of this fascinating, intriguing and very personal story. I turned it with some regret as I had found Jonathan's account of his life - his fears, uncertainties, loyalties, discoveries and his passionate devotion to all things living, deeply moving. Few people know and continue to know, as profoundly as he does, the fearful challenges that face the natural world and its unique inhabitants. So when he raises the alarm and voices his deep fears for the future of those creatures and their vanishing homelands, we would be wise to listen to his words. They come from 40 or more years of living and breathing Africa." Virginia McKenna "Nobody knows lions like Jonathan Scott. He has been patiently observing them in Africa for many years and his Big Cat Diaries have given us all a wonderful chance to share his knowledge." Desmond Morris "You can't make, buy or fake passion. It's pure and precious and probably the most valuable thing on earth. And when it comes to big cats, Africa and wildlife Jonathan has it in buckets. Along with knowledge and a great love." Chris Packham "Jonathan Scott - our man in the Maasai Mara - has written evocative account of his life with the lions, leopards and cheetahs. A true insight into one of the world's greatest locations for wildlife." Stephen Moss "A cracking tale - and crackingly well told with deftness, compassion and humour. From the man whose name is synonymous with big cats, this is the brutally honest and insightful story of a life lived to the full." Mark Carwardine "An engaging, thought-provoking read, presented by Bradt in truly sumptuous style, richly illustrated with Scott's own sketches and photographs." The Lady
About the Author
In a career spanning 40 years, Jonathan Scott has become one of the most loved and recognised wildlife celebrities in the world presenting on shows such as the long-running series Wild Kingdom in the US and the enormously popular Big Cat Diary on the BBC in the UK and 15 other countries globally. A gifted writer, Jonathan is also a talented illustrator and award-winning photographer; he and his wife Angela are the only couple to have individually won the Overall Award in the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. Originally from the UK, Jonathan now lives in Kenya, dividing his time between his house in a leafy suburb of Nairobi – with giraffes as neighbours - and his cottage on the famous Masai Mara National Reserve. The Mara is the location for many of the popular TV series that Jonathan has presented for the BBC, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, Paramount TV and Turner Broadcasting including Big Cat Diary, Elephant Diaries, Big Bear Diary, Dawn to Dusk, Flamingo Watch and Africa Watch.
