HC/DJ - near fine. Very large hardcover in excellent condition, clean and unmarked other than one very small tear to spine bottom. Jacket has light scuffing, light scratches, a little edge crinkling but no tears. Spectacular photos throughout. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 252 pages; Animals of Africa captures the unique beauty of the African natural world in 200 full-color photographs by four top wildlife photographers: Jim Brandenburg, Mitsuaki Iwago, Frans Lanting, and Michael Nichols. Against the backdrop of an exquisite landscape that ranges from desert scrub land to the savanna, the mountains, and rainforests, their extraordinary images feature the hunters, grazers, waterbirds, and strange menagerie of Madagascar’s isolated forgotten Eden. This exciting volume features up-close images of fearsome lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas; the gentle grazers such as wildebeests, zebras, deer, gazelles, and giraffes; the giant “untouchables” such as elephants, rhinos, and cape buffalos; as well as birds from flamingoes to vultures, water animals such as hippos and crocodiles, and of course the chimps and great apes. Animals of Africa brings its wonder to the armchair traveler in dozens of striking images. These powerful photographs will deepen your appreciation of the natural world, of the fragility and balance of life, and also bring to light how imperative it is to preserve these African animals and the wildernesses in which they live.

Profusely illustrated in colour. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Compiling 130 of the best photographs and stories from the long hot summer of 2003, senior editors and photographers from The Vancouver Sun and The Province newspapers reflect on the historic, economic, and emotional toll of the fires. There are three sections on the main fire areas-Kamloops, Kelowna, and Cranbrook-that delve into the tragedies and the triumphs of the fires that burned (and in many cases continue to burn) in those regions. Included are many tales of the men and women-including firefighters who had lost their own homes-who risked their lives on the front lines, volunteers who gave generously of their time and money, and friends and neighbours, and even strangers, from all over the country, who rallied to help those in need. Finally, an epilogue reflects on the rebuilding process and what's ahead for the people and the communities affected by the devastation. [870] .

SHADOW CATCHER The Life and Work of Edward S. Curtis

By Lawlor, Laurie

Douglas & McIntyre. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 1994. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 1550542354 . Ex-library book, but still in very good condition. Pages are clean and tight. Laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings. Moderate scuffing to laminate on jacket, light wear at corners and a little loosening to edges of laminate. B/w photos; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Lawlor (Addie Across the Prairie) engagingly chronicles the life and work of photographer-ethnologist Edward S. Curtis (1868- 1952) , perhaps best known for his 20-volume The North American Indian, a collection of photographs and written histories of the tribes he spent more than 30 years studying. According to Lawlor, Curtis sacrificed much for his determination to record a culture he believed to be on the brink of extinction. The lively text focuses on his struggles, from his beginnings as a studio photographer in 1890s Seattle to his neverending quest for financial support from the likes of Teddy Roosevelt and J. P. Morgan, to his patience in winning the trust of the people he sought to memorialize. Although openly admiring, Lawlor does not shy away from more problematic aspects of Curtis's career-she acknowledges that he staged events for the camera and posed his subjects, and that his obsession with his mission impoverished and eventually unraveled his family. The exquisitely designed book (printed in sepia on cream paper) contains scores of Curtis's haunting photographs, as well as portraits of Curtis and his family. [691] .
