In this remarkable book Chris McBride, author of the White Lions of Timbavati and Operation White Lion provides a dramatic record of his time with the night hunters of Savuti. This account of the ceaseless struggle between Africa’s largest carnivore, the lion, and its prey hurtles the reader into the dust- swirled world of the Savuti Lion prides with all its uncertainty and sudden death.
It takes a rare gift to combine raw scientific data with a personal vision and belief in things natural to produce a captivating narrative. Chris McBride’s book based on his work in the mystical Savuti Channel area of Botswana is such a work. – Prof. J. du P Bothma, former head, CENTRE FOR WILDLIFE RESEARCH, UNIVERSITY OF PRETORIA
