In 1976 a deadly virus emerged from the Congo forest. As swiftly as it came, it disappeared, leaving no trace. Over the four decades since, Ebola has emerged sporadically, each time to devastating effect. It can kill up to 90% of its victims. In between these outbreaks, it is untraceable, hiding deep in the jungle. The search is on to find Ebola’s elusive host animal. And until we find it, Ebola will continue to strike. Acclaimed science writer and explorer David Quammen first came near the virus whilst travelling in the jungles of Gabon, accompanied by local men whose village had been devastated by a recent outbreak. Here he tells the story of Ebola, its past, present and its unknowable future.

The trouble with lions is that while you are conducting a pregnancy test, you need to be equally, if not more, aware of what you can learn from the lion's other end. That is one lesson that Jerry Haigh brings home in this fascinating collection of stories about working with wild animals in Africa. Conversational in tone, conservational in theme—you will be right beside Jerry, wife Jo, and a colourful cast of vets, guides, and wardens as they scour Africa’s sprawling vistas “troubleshooting” lions, rhinos, humans, and other indigenous mammals. Conservationists, veterinarians, and fans of real-life adventure tales will want to keep this memoir handy on the dashboards of their Land Cruisers.

Mein Paradies im Herzen von Kenia Von Kindesbeinen an gilt Daphne Sheldricks ganze Liebe den wilden Tieren Afrikas. Bereits als junge Frau leistet sie wahre Pionierarbeit, als sie unermüdlich kämpft für die Errichtung von Schutzgebieten, doch die große Wende ihres Lebens ereignet sich, als sie David Sheldrick begegnet, dem charismatischen Leiter des Tsavo Nationalparks. Es ist eine leidenschaftliche und tiefe Liebe, die sie verbindet, und sie bleiben unzertrennlich bis zu Davids tragischem und viel zu frühen Tod. Daphne Sheldrick, entschlossen, das Werk ihres Mannes fortzusetzen, gründet eine Rettungsorganisation für verwaiste Elefantenkinder. Ihr Buch legt Zeugnis ab von den unvergleichlichen und zutiefst berührenden Freundschaften zwischen Menschen und Tieren - und ist eine großartige Liebeserklärung an den schwarzen Kontinent.

Im August 1992 wurde die Leiche von Chris McCandless im Eis von Alaska gefunden. Wer war dieser junge Mann, und was hatte ihn in die gottverlassene Wildnis getrieben? Jon Krakauer hat sein Leben erforscht, seine Reise in den Tod rekonstruiert und ein traurig-schönes Buch geschrieben über die Sehnsucht, die diesen Mann veranlasste, sämtliche Besitztümer und Errungenschaften der Zivilisation hinter sich zu lassen, um tief in die wilde und einsame Schönheit der Natur einzutauchen.– Verfilmt von Sean Penn mit Emile Hirsch.
