Lions, Tigers, and Bears
"The glossy full-color photos, strong conservation message and the selection of familiar and appealing predators will invite browsing by nature enthusiasts."
"Hirschi’s approach is gentle and engaging, but the urgency of his message is not lost–these animals need human help. ...Hirschi offers a page on how to help these large beasts; readers are directed to Web sites for each animal. ...Mangelsen’s crisp color photographs are beautifully composed and heart-grabbing. ...This book about a timely topic is a first purchase."

"In this attractive, wide-format book, Hirschi discusses seven large predators and why they are currently endangered. ...About half the space is devoted to excellent color photos, which show up well on the heavy, glossy pages. Hirschi’s informative text introduces the animals and discusses how they live, what they need to thrive, and what elements are endangering them at present. ...A handsome volume. "
