Against the backdrop of an exquisite landscape that ranges from desert scrub land to the savanna, the mountains, and rainforests, their extraordinary images feature the hunters, grazers, waterbirds, and strange menagerie of Madagascar’s isolated forgotten Eden. This exciting volume features up-close images of fearsome lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas; the gentle grazers such as wildebeests, zebras, deer, gazelles, and giraffes; the giant “untouchables” such as elephants, rhinos, and cape buffalos; as well as birds from flamingoes to vultures, water animals such as hippos and crocodiles, and of course the chimps and great apes. Animals of Africa brings its wonder to the armchair traveler in dozens of striking images. These powerful photographs will deepen your appreciation of the natural world, of the fragility and balance of life, and also bring to light how imperative it is to preserve these African animals and the wildernesses in which they live.

University of Nebraska Press 1997 080326142X / 9780803261426 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Only light wear overall - light soiling outer edge of pages, interior clean and tight, b/w illus. ; 8vo; From Publishers Weekly: Since 1970, action by government, organizations and individuals has brought the bald eagle from the brink of extinction to a measure of recovery; it is now listed as threatened instead of endangered. Environmental writer Beans here spins a captivating story of the eagle's significance in American culture and its current status in the American wilderness. In Florida, a retired Canadian banker spent more than 20 winters banding eaglets; in a New Jersey swamp, a biologist built an artificial nest to attract nesting birds; in the West, undercover agents of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service pursued a widespread traffic in eagle parts and feathers. Beans charts the eagle's comeback in New Jersey, Virginia and Florida; problems of habitat destruction and pollution remain. In Alaska, he finds the nation's greatest congregation of eagles on the Chilkat River, now a bald eagle preserve. An inspiring volume for the environmental bookshelf. (425-noto)
