Synopsis:

In a remarkable text, Eric Grace sets out to discover the true nature of lions. His lively and informed discussion of these creatures is accompanied by stunning photographs by the world-renowned wildlife photographer Art Wolfe.

From how a lion's physical construction makes it one of nature's greatest hunters, to the conditions that have made lions the only truly social cats, all aspects of lions' biology and behavior are discussed in The Nature of Lions. The book explores the magical and checkered relationship between humans and lions from prehistory to the present, and includes a look at the status of lions today and efforts to preserve them.

Throughout, spectacular photographs show lions chasing a herd of wildebeests, eating their kill on the savanna, caring for their young, or basking in the shade of an acacia tree. Together, the images and text capture the power and majesty of this most social of cats.
