I bought this book based on my respect for the high quality of National Geographic Magazine in photography. I felt disappointed after I received this book. This is a year 2010 publication, so we should expect to see a collection of amazing photos published in recent years NGM, but the quality of this book could make you feel as if you watched many photo slides recorded on an old VCR tape in a few decades ago. Also, many photos were artificially composited in an old style that I really dislike. Unless I missed something here, I cannot understand the value of publishing a wildlife photo book using out-of-date material.

I bought this wonderful book as a gift for a safari guide in Tanzania. He already knows about the migration on the cover. Wanted a book that showed him migrations in other places. Sadly, there are no books about North America's greatest migration, because the American bison is essentially gone, limited to small areas on ranches and national parks. No longer will we see 20 million animals on the move.

I found the book at Borders for $3.99 the day after I received from Amazon. Just like other reviewers I expected the quality of the pictures to be great, but they weren't. They were more like average-good.
