Book Review: The Leopard’s Tale by Jonathan and Angela Scott
Safari hunters have one main aim in mind when they set off. To hope they see a glimpse of the charismatic and elusive leopard.
Wildlife and travel photographers Jonathan and Angela Scott have had the privilege of seeing them many times after spending hours in watch in Africa.
Jonathan first watched Chui in Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserve in the 1970s and 1980s and spent every wakening moment watching this graceful animal in action.
He then enjoyed following the exploits of Chui’s cubs Light and Dark and when Chui vanished some years later, Jonathan followed another young female called Half-Tail.
The Leopard’s Tale is a wonderful tale and beautifully written, with stunning photographs by Angela and told with obvious passion from a couple who just love this creature wholeheartedly.
