Author and wildlife photographer
Review by Margaret Hamilton
From the arresting close up of a lion on the cover, to the excellent photographs of African wild animals, this colourful book sets out to educate readers about wild animals in Africa.
During her eleven trips to Africa the author has come to know the animals well and to respect their lives in their native habitats. The text is written with fascinating detail and is illustrated with magnificent photographs and interesting facts.
It is fascinating to read the personal story of the author’s thrilling close encounters with wild animals, sometimes to the point of being in danger. Her respect and love for the animals, many of them endangered, shines through in her intimate style of writing and will inspire all readers. Highly recommended for all ages. Latta also produces free educational videos.
