Join National Geographic wildlife photographer Robert Haas on a safari through Africa in this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2009. Stories about actual events from his safaris are interwoven with photographs of lions, cheetahs, hyenas, elephants, and many other creatures and convey an appreciation for the splendor and diversity of African wildlife.

This book provides first-person observations of habitats and behavior; these are infused with scientific understanding and respect. This book will be not only valuable to support lessons on animals and ecology but will provide inspiration to students who are artistically inclined and may want to explore more adventuresome paths to scientific research.
