Wolfe (Living Wild) and Gilders (Reflections of a Whale-Watcher) are not as comprehensive or informative as Reader and, alas, revive that dubious perception of Africa as primarily a land of wildlife and untamed terrain, an unfortunate aspect of the Westerner's fascination with the continent. They provide stunning pictures of already familiar wildlife and landscape, while the accompanying text crusades for conservation and preservation. To Wolfe and Gilders, Africa exists only in those regions where exotic wildlife abounds. South and East Africa are thus transformed into surrogates for the entire continent; a limited view indeed! Reader's volume is recommended for all public and academic libraries, while Wolfe and Gilders's is recommended for larger public libraries only. Edward K.

Winner of numerous awards honoring both his photographs and his commitment to conservation, he is one of the most published nature photographers today.

Book Description 
  
This stunning collection of photographs covers five ecosystems -- savannah, woodland, rainforest, wetland, and desert -- and depicts habitat, animals, and human inhabitants for each. The photographs represent 20 trips to Africa over a span of 20 years, including a March 2001 photo safari to Tanzania. Michelle Gilders's five essays accompany Art Wolfe's exquisite photographs and address the pressing need to protect the diversity of each ecosystem.
