Book Review - Fierce Beauty: Preserving the World of Wild Cats
Fierce Beauty is a celebration of tigers, leopards, lions, ocelots, and other wild cats that inhabit The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (TIGERS), a wildlife preserve in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The institute’s fifty acres are home to more than one hundred rare animals, from ligers (a hybrid cross between a male lion and a tigress) that stretch nearly twelve feet long to cheetahs capable of running seventy miles per hour. Featuring dozens of exclusive new portraits from preeminent nature photographer Tim Flach, Fierce Beauty depicts the beauty, power, and grace of these remarkable creatures as never before. And with more than 300 images of wild cats and essays by such distinguished conservationists as zoologist and TV personality Jim Fowler, Dakota Zoo director Terry Lincoln, and a foreword by renowned actor Robert Duvall, Fierce Beauty enables readers to experience the vibrant form, bold markings, and striking personalities that make wild cats unique cohabitants of mankind.
My Take on the Book
My daughter is a huge fan of large cats, especially lions. This book is an amazing book that brings you so much closer than you usually can get in person. One thing that I loved about the book was than it shares all of the big cats in beautiful images and helps you to truly come to appreciate the beauty and splendor of these wonderful cats. One of the other things that I really liked was that this book allowed you to see some cats that you will not see in zoos and even less frequently in the wild. BY the end of this book you will also come to see that these cats need to be taken care of and saved from extinction. This was an amazing book that any animal lover will love!
