“A remarkable story beautifully told…Among such classics as Goodall’s In the Shadow of Man and Fossey’s Gorillas in the Mist.”—Chicago Tribune
Carrying little more than a change of clothes and a pair of binoculars, two young Americans, Mark and Delia Owens, caught a plane to Africa, bought a thirdhand Land Rover, and drove deep into the Kalahari Desert. There they lived for seven years, in an unexplored area with no roads, no people, and no source of water for thousands of square miles.?
In this vast wilderness the Owenses began their zoology research, working alongside animals that had never before been exposed to humans including lions, brown hyenas, jackals, and giraffes. It is also a gripping account of how they survived the dangers of living in one of the last and largest pristine areas on Earth. Travelers and animal lovers alike will be instantly captivated by their tale.
