This stunning collection of photographs covers five ecosystems -- savannah, woodland, rainforest, wetland, and desert -- and depicts habitat, animals, and human inhabitants for each. The photographs represent 20 trips to Africa over a span of 20 years, including a March 2001 photo safari to Tanzania. Michelle Gilders's five essays accompany Art Wolfe's exquisite photographs and address the pressing need to protect the diversity of each ecosystem.

Art Wolfe is one of the most celebrated nature photographers in the world. His honours include a 2000 Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Magazine Photography and the 1998 Nature Photographer of the Year Award. He is the author of The Living Wild and Rainforests of the World, both published by Harvill.From Booklist:
It is difficult to find enough superlatives to describe photographer Wolfe. Winner of numerous awards honoring both his photographs and his commitment to conservation, he is one of the most published nature photographers today. Africa presents a selection from 20 years of his career, and it easily makes a place for itself in the crowded field of books about the second largest continent. Divided into five sections, the photos are grouped by habitat type: savannah, woodland, rain forest, wetland and desert. Each section begins with an essay introducing the reader to the area's ecosystem, animals, and people. The photographs that follow are simply amazing. Following the format of his Living Wild [BKL O 15 00], Wolfe has included numerous panoramic views that place the animals in the context of their environment. Scattered throughout are intimate close-ups of smaller creatures, such as lizards and kingfishers. "Notes from the Field" provide Wolfe's jottings about the photos, including camera and lens types and exposure readings. Nancy Bent
