George Schaller here shares with his readers the fascinating personal story behind his scientific discoveries that have so notably advanced our knowledge of the great African predators. In this book, he allows us to participate moment by moment in his work and his experience on the Tanzanian plains as for three years he made his extraordinary observations of the habits, the hunting methods, the social systems, and the behavior--the lives from birth to death--of the lion, the wild dog, the cheetah, the leopard, and the hyena.ISBN: 0-394-47243-8
