About the Author
Praise For Chasing Cheetahs: The Race to Save Africa's Fastest Cat (Scientists in the Field Series)…
—Kirkus, starred review
"Striking photographs of the cheetahs, the people and landscape of Namibia, and the conservationists fully capture the dedication of these scientists, and the awesome power of the cheetahs."
—Horn Book Magazine
"Bishop's extreme closeups can't capture the cheetahs' blinding speed, but the cats' movie-star glamour is on prominent display, especially in a few breathtaking extreme closeups."
"Along with sharp views of the facility’s experts and student volunteers working with cheetahs and taking general wildlife counts, Bishop provides plenty of stunning cheetah photography—both full-body and head shots—to beautifully complement Montgomery’s detailed descriptions of daily routines, research projects, and medical procedures."
* "This is a readable, informative and elegant book on an equally elegant feline."
—School Library Journal, starred review
