"A symbol of mythic potency, the African lion has ruled the human imagination for millennia. But in Botswana's Okavango Delta, the world's most awe-inspiring hunters are challenged not only by their waterlogged territory, but also by their formidable prey--the buffalo--who wield their massive horns with deadly accuracy. Pulsing with ancient rhythms of wild Africa, this harsh and eternal struggle is compelling, powerful, and poignant. Award-winning filmmakers and National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Beverly and Dereck Joubert, give us an unforgettable glimpse of this iconic drama in the official companion book to their feature film, 'The Last Lions', and warn that due to declining numbers of lions in the wild, it may soon end forever..."--P. [4] of cover.

This was a good book. The photos are fantastic as they show the lions going after the buffalo and the lion cubs are cute too. If you like nature! You must borrow the DVD that is the same as the book.
