Few experiences in life can match those of observing wildlife in its natural environment, and even fewer can match the enchanting sight of the birth of a new generation of animals, as they tentatively take their first steps into a brand new world. The De la Harpe and Dennis teams have spent years photographing wildlife, and here they offer a close-up view of the new-born, showing a wide variety of young African wildlife -- from a newly born buffalo and just-hatched crocodiles, to endearing elephant calves and cute wild dog pups -- and their interplay with parents and siblings. With over 100 photographs and a short but concise text filled with fascinating facts, this book is a must for nature-lovers of any age.
