From cover to design to content, this is a treasure of a book assembled by a discerning artist of the highest caliber, who can hold a scalpel and a camera with equal ease. The dedication with which Dr. Starke approached the subject matter and brought out through extraordinary images the rich life of wild animals of East Africa in their natural habitat is one of the highest creative achievements. The delicate threads that connect the inhabitants of these national parks is worthy of much contemplation.
