In search of Africa's Great Tuskers is a celebration of the timeless beauty of untamed Africa - its mountains and deserts, tropical rainforests and endless Savannahs. More particularly, though, it is a celebration of Africa's great tuskers - those bull elephants who are becoming increasingly rare in the twenty-first century, the legendary 'hundred-pounders' that were so plentiful in colonial times. Johan Marais has long been fascinated by the mystery and dignity of these giants of the wilderness. In this title he takes us with him on his travels to some of the most remote and beautiful African landscapes in his quest to find and photograph Africa's great tuskers, and to find out what is being done to ensure their survival for future generations. Abundantly illustrated with Johan's magnificent photographs and Alan Ainslies evocative drawings, this is a book that will appeal to all who delight in Africa's wild places.
