9780792270201: Hunting With the Moon: The Lions of Savuti

Over a hundred breathtaking full-color images captured by Beverly Joubert's ever-watchful camera represent not just superb wildlife photography but a priceless record of a little-known natural phenomenon. They create a portrait of the Savuti lions at rest, at play, and on the shadowy hunts that end in a sudden, explosive kill, offering a rare glimpse of the lithe power and ruthless beauty that have mesmerized humans for millennia. Dereck Joubert's detailed and engaging text documents years of observation, providing invaluable insight into the biology, behavior, and social structure of an elusive species; at the same time he brings to life the individual animals the Jouberts came to know so well: Maome, the matriarch whose clan played together every evening; Ntchwaidumela, the bold and unflappable male who defied a charging elephant; Sequela, the old exile who returned to spend his last days with his pride, and many more. Last but by no means least, Hunting With the Moon is a chronicle of human dedication, a deeply personal account of a couple who have devoted their lives to understanding and protecting the magnificent beasts who prowl these pages in all their majestic grace.

From Library Journal:

This book is the spectacular culmination of over 20 years' work by the Jouberts, who have won numerous awards and honors for their documentary films. In the late 1970s, they began an intense study of lions in the Savuti (an area of approximately 200 square miles that is part of the Chobe National Park in Botswana). Adventuresome in spirit, the Jouberts tackled the additional challenge of observing and documenting lion behavior at night, noticing several differences in behavior from the more traditional East Africa lion studies. Male lions, for example, participate in kills rather than scavenging off the kills of lionesses. They also documented the ongoing and forceful battles between lions and hyenas. Their book is breathtakingly illustrated with only a small number of photos they have taken over the years. Readers will come away with a new appreciation for rapidly disappearing wilderness areas and the wild creatures that inhabit them. Highly recommended.?Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., Wis.
