'In wonderful photographs and prose, here is an account that, because of new challenges to leopard populations as much as the observational difficulties, few are likely to replicate.' Conde Nast Traveller 'The authors certainly convey inexhaustible enthusiasm and an undimmed sense of wonder at the natural world.' Good Book Guide 'The new final third of the book, which whisks through the leopard dynasty chronicled by Big Cat Diary, is compelling' BBC Wildlife Magazine
