The large carnivore reign supreme in the African wild - superior, powerful, skillful and feared. From the big cats to the endangered wild dog and Ethiopian wolf, the often-maligned hyaenas and the opportunistic jackal, these hunters captivate, fascinate and excite, and provide the raw drama of Africa so eagerly sought by many wildlife lovers. Respected author Gus Mills and wildlife photographer Martin Harvey combine their talents and their knowledge of these animals to tell the story of their existence. Mills brings many years of study and practical research in revealing the origins, the present struggle for survival and the uncertain future of Africa's predatory mammals. His examination of their behaviour, social make-up, relations and interactions is supported by Harvey's superb and dramatic photography.
