The definitive nature book, Wildlife is master photographer Mitsuaki Iwago's glorious homage to the animal kingdom, an abundant treasury of more than 450 photographs culled from a lifetime of work and presented in an unputdownable format. Iwago is one of the world's preeminent wildlife photographers, his images repeatedly lauded as superbly composed, dramatic, intelligent, and beautiful. His first book, Serengeti, was called one of the finest wildlife books ever published and has sold over 80,000 copies. Wildlife boasts the same riveting perspective, but takes us a good deal further, presenting wildlife of all kinds on every continent. Organized by region, from the Galapagos Islands to the plains of Africa, from the forests of India to the ice floes of Alaska, Wildlife is the rare nature book that is international in scope. Turn these pages and the panoply of creation dazzles the mind and the eye. Asian elephants, African lions, Antarctic penguins, North American otters-the world's myriad creatures show themselves in this brilliantly colorful tour. Here is an absolutely essential volume for all who love animals.?

Review:

Mitsuaki Iwago thinks like an animal. How else to explain his ability to get so close to, so intimate with, the creatures he photographs? In Wildlife, Iwago captures the beauty, savagery, and whimsy of the animal world with more than 450 pictures taken all over the globe. It's hard to pick highlights from such a rich collection, but the Antarctic section rivals any photo book on the subject; Iwago's graceful color images of sunbathing seals, rock-hopping penguins, and soaring albatross are set against a stark, unforgiving landscape. In the African section, Iwago definitely puts the "wild" in "wildlife": in one brutal series, a family of cheetahs brings down their prey, casually killing with the ease of practiced predators and then licking blood from their chops. But he is also adept at finding the gentler moments of animal life, like an old red kangaroo resting quietly in the sun. Wildlife offers brief, intimate glances at the daily lives of hundreds of species, from the lens of a man who seems to understand what it is to be an animal. --Therese Littleton
