Botswana’s Moremi Reserve, with its grasslands muddy and lush from flooding rains, is the setting for the Lewins’ latest wildlife quest. . . . Though the authors and their guide are shown briefly, the emphasis is strictly on the splendid animals encountered each day. The richness of landscape is only broadly suggested in the bright, hazy scenes. Bits of drama unfold as the authors describe the tensions between predators and their prey. . . . An introductory map, two informative concluding pages of elephant facts, and an index round out this beautifully rendered introduction to the region’s wildlife and ecology that is also a tantalizing adventure story.
