Editorial Reviews

Review

 Winner of the John Burroughs Medal for Best Natural History Book of the Year

“Extraordinary…How the couple overcame the hazards of the desert and came to appreciate its living richness makes fascinating reading…Read their remarkable book to be delighted, moved, and awed.”—People

​“For anyone interested in animals or in real live adventure, this book is a must.”—Jane Goodall

“Leaps off the page and sweeps you away.”—Los Angeles Times

“Splendid…If [the Owenses’s] survival is a wonder, so is their book—stirring, heartening, and elegiac all at once.”—Newsweek

“One of the best testimonials to the perseverance, idealism, and general spunk of passionate animal students.”—Washington Post

“Mark and Delia Owens’s simple human passion and dedication are invigorating. This is a remarkable and important story.”—Barry Lopez
 

About the Author

When Mark and Delia Owens first went to Africa in 1974, they bought a thirdhand Land Rover, drove deep into the Kalahari Desert, and lived there for seven years. They are the authors of Cry of the Kalahari, an international bestseller and winner of the John Burroughs Medal, The Eye of the Elephant, and Secrets of the Savanna. After more than 30 years in Africa, they returned to the United States to carry on their conservation work.


DELIA OWENS is the author of the bestselling Where the Crawdads Sing, her first novel, and the coauthor of three internationally bestselling nonfiction books about her life as a wildlife scientist in Africa: Cry of the Kalahari, The Eye of theElephant, and Secrets of the Savanna. She has won the John Burroughs Award for Nature Writing and has been published in Nature, African Journal of Ecology, and International Wildlife, among many others. She lives in Idaho, where she continues her support for the people and wildlife of Zambia.
