Review:

Praise for the author:

Art Wolfe’s photographs are magically composed and stunningly beautiful. Like nature poetry of the first rank, they pull our emotions closer to some of the most charismatic and (sadly) endangered animal species of the world.”
Edward O. Wilson

Art Wolfe is an artist. He works with all of the artistic elements . . . line, form, texture, composition, light and shadow, and produces visual masterpieces from the real world. Turning the pages of The Living Wild brings on not only a psychological reaction but a physical reaction . . . my jaw drops and my breath is almost taken away by the imagination and beauty he has brought to us.”
Robert Bateman

Art Wolfe’s brilliant and sensitive photographs are a powerful stimulation for changing attitudes. Art is passionately involved in the life-and-death struggle of the African continent, its people, its wildlife, and its forests, woodlands, savannahs, and deserts. His love and commitment are revealed in each photograph and these, in turn, will stir the heart of the reader.”
Jane Goodall

[A] master of the most advanced photographic techniques.”
Roger Tory Peterson

Art has the broadest range of excellence of any nature photographer I know.”
Galen Rowell
