You’re crouched in the African brush, camera at the ready. You’re waiting on one of nature’s loners. It’s dark. It’s scary. Then silently, he appears; the ever-elusive leopard. You have seconds to capture on film this wonder of the wild, with its exotic spotted fur, so prized by hunters. National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert take you closer to the mystery of the magnificent leopard and make a passionate plea to young readers to help secure a future for these feline treasures.
Dereck and Beverly Joubert, recently named National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, are internationally acclaimed naturalists and cinematographers. Their many years with lions have yielded not only books like "Hunting with the Moon," but such highly praised documentary films as "Eternal Enemies: Lions and Hyenas; Reflections on Elephants; " and "Lions of Darkness"--an outstanding body of work that has won four Emmys, two Chris awards, and a George Foster Peabody award.
