SOUTHERN AFRICA

DON'T LETS GO TO THE DOGS TONIGHT: An African Childhood, Alexandra Fuller

WILD AT HEART: Man and Beast in Southern Africa, photographer, Chris Johns; text, Peter Godwin; foreward, Nelson Mandela

Reprising the years-long, in-depth collaboration that produced much of National Geographic magazine's coverage of southern Africa, Johns and Godwin present this exploration of the region’s myriad facets and its collisions between tradition and modernity, conservation and development, and people and animals.

In evocative photographs and anecdotal text, Wild at Heart crisscrosses southern Africa — from the Kalahari Desert and Drakensburg Mountains to the Skeleton coast and Zambesi River — to reveal its diverse populations and wildlife and highlight their interdependence. Johns’s photographs of wildlife, including cheetahs, rhinos, elephants, and his sensitive portraits of Himba pastoralists, San Bushmen hunter-gatherers, Zulu farmers, and other populations combine with Godwin’s stories that both entertain and enlighten. The result is a detailed yet panoramic image of southern Africa. The story is presented in an oversize format with a top-opening spine that allows gallery-quality presentation of the images.
