About the Author

California-based wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas spends nine months of the year shooting a wide variety of wildlife in the field. In recent years, she has specialized in documenting family life and has become well known for her unprecedented work with newborn animals. Although Eszterhas works primarily in Africa, she has undertaken commissions and led instructional photography tours and workshops everywhere from Antarctica and the Arctic to Alaska and Montana. When not on location, she divides her time between California, U.S., and Bristol, U.K.

Praise For Eye on the Wild

"A splendid offering that provides young readers with just the right amount of information and stunning photographs, 'Gorilla' is a great read." - Kendal A. Rautzhan, syndicated newspaper columnist

"While the storyline reads like a children’s book, the photographs could be in National Geographic... I give these books my Alaskan Mom Approval and recommend them to any animal loving family. The combination of photography and engaging storyline make these a regular in our bedtime story rotation." - AK Mom Approved blog

"Far, far away, in the misty mountains of Africa, a baby gorilla is born. The tiny bundle of black fur needs to be looked after just like a human baby. Mom is with her all the time, holding the baby close to her big chest and keeping her warm and safe."
