For many years and through many of the world's most remote regions, Wade Davis has traveled in search of the rare places where cultural diversity survives, untainted by the influences of globalization and modernization. "The Clouded Leopard" brings together the extraordinary travels that sprang from this quest. His travels emphasize the fragility of the planet yet also illuminate the places and people where the bond between landscape and spirit is preserved. Beautiful and disturbing, tragic and yet hopeful, his work sends out a timely message that cannot be ignored.
