Interwoven with Norton's striking photographs of the landscapes, birds and mammals of the Serengeti are tales of favorite places and moments over the last twenty-five years exploring the plains of East Africa. He writes in an essay on predator and prey:
Featuring 250 color photographs and Boyd Norton's firsthand accounts from his travels in Serengeti National Park, Kenya’s Masai Mara, and Ngorongoro Crater, this striking book is the culmination of a decades-long career in East Africa. Chosen as one of the "40 Most Influential Nature Photographers" in 2010, the roving Norton has worked in the Rocky Mountains, Lake Baikal and Alaska. He is founder and director of Serengeti Watch with Longitude friend and colleague Dave Blanton.
