WALKING THUNDER: In the Footsteps of the African Elephant is the first black and white book of its kind dedicated entirely to a single species in the wild.
The African elephant is one of the most majestic creatures on Earth, yet it faces an uncertain future. Walking Thunder is a superb tribute to the remarkable beauty of these endangered creatures. Striking duotone images by award-winning photographers Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson capture not only the awesome strength and size of the African elephant, but also its gentleness and human-like emotions. Accompanying the photographs are quotations, myths and stories from the past 400 years, from folklore and from explorers and tribal members, presenting both Western and indigenous perspectives. At once entrancing and thought-provoking, this is the perfect book for anyone passionate about the conservation of our planet.
