"Experience the wonders of wild Africa as seen though the eyes of master photographer Frans Lanting, whose images have created an enduring vision of the continent's primeval natural heritage--and what is at stake in the twenty-first century. Lanting's images feature some of the most celebrated landscapes on Earth, from the sweeping vistas of the Serengeti Plains and the water wilderness of the Okavango Delta the enchanting deserts of Namibia, the bewildering jungles of the Congo, and the otherwordly island of Madagascar. During many journeys over the past three decades, Lanting has documented Africa's iconic animals--elephants, rhinos, giraffes, lions, leopards, and cheetahs--as well as its endangered primates, including gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, and lemurs. His personal stories express the deep understanding and sense of mission that make his work stand out as a unique tribute to the continent's wildlife and wild places. This book is based on Fran Lanting's landmark exhibition Into Africa, which was produced as a partnership with the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History and the National Geographic Society, with support from the Wold Wildlife Fund"--Jacket
