Though I don’t often review ‘nature books’, this one came to me back in July when I received an email from Beth Svinarich at University Press of Colorado. I must admit that an enquiry from University of Colorado at that particular time caught my eye, it being just days after the atrocity committed by James Holmes. Anyway, Beth wanted to bring my attention to this book, and beyond the morbidity of the story about Holmes, the content caught my eye. I have an affinity for cats, and this book is a c ...more

Wonderful collection of stories from several people and several countries that have lived in, worked in or studied the snow leopard. What a rare event to see them! That would be amazing.

Different people journey and study in the high mountains of Pakistan, India,Nepal and Tajikistan while searching for the endangered, elusive and majestic snow leopard. Mostly they talk about the hardships of the journey and living in high altitudes as well as the difficulty of trying to save the snow leopards while they kill the livestock of the natives. The stories are pretty much the same with minor differences. The animals must be something to see given how hard they are to spot.
My dad got me a signed copy of this book for Christmas and I LOVE it. I am pursuing a career in research and wildlife conservation and these stories were such an inspiration! Snow leopards are amazing creatures and I admire those who study and protect them. I highly recommend this book :)
