The Big Cat Man
This autobiography by wildlife celebrity Jonathan Scott celebrates the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most popular wildlife presenters and photographers. From his childhood on a Berkshire farm in the UK to his rise to international fame as a presenter on the Big Cat Diary, one of the BBC Natural History Unit’s most popular and long-running wildlife series, Jonathan Scott has lived a life that many people can only dream about.
Christian The Lion: The Illustrated Legacy
In 1969, at the height of swinging London, two carefree young Australians – John Rendall and Anthony ‘Ace’ Bourke – bought a lion cub from Harrod’s. It was the start of an extraordinary journey. After raising the cub in their Chelsea flat, and exercising him after dark
in the gardens of a local church, the men teamed up with the legendary George Adamson to prepare Christian the Lion for the wilds of Africa. Today, the YouTube clip of their heart-warming reunion with Christian deep in the bush continues to inspire millions.
In this stunning book, Rendall revisits his remarkable story, breathing new life into its many colourful characters and explaining its lasting legacy for conservation. Its pages are packed with extraordinary, never-before-seen images from photographer and honorary pride member Derek Cattani.
A Cheetah’s Tale
Imagine waking up at dawn to find your father has just shot a lioness that was about to eat you. Or going to the bathroom, half asleep in the middle of the night, and finding a deadly black mamba curled up inside the loo. Or being charged by a herd of angry elephants, intent on protecting their young. These are just a few of the adventures seventeen-year-old Marie Christine von Reibnitz (who would later become HRH Princess Michael of Kent) experiences on her father’s farm in Mozambique in the early 1960s.
Beautifully written by a natural storyteller, A Cheetah’s Tale is a wonderful story of a vanished Africa, of a girl growing up and of the incredible bond that can exist between people and animals. It’s certain to delight readers worldwide – this is the cheetah version of Born Free.
