5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read if you love African wildlife 27 avril 2000
Par Joseph McCauley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Of the many books I've read about wildlife, this one sticks in my mind as one of the best, even though it's been several years since I first read it. Some books like George Schaller's "The Serengeti Lion" have more sceintific bent and therefore keep a 'professional distance' from the animals, while others such as those by Joy Adamson and Gareth Patterson become very personal with the animals and lose much of their objectivity. But Mark and Delia Owens find a happy medium between the two extremes, one where we learn a lot about the lions, brown hyenas and other animals they study in the Kalahari desert, but also come to know some of the individuals among these animals as friends.
We also get a taste of life in the Kalahari desert in the middle of Botswana, some of the hardships and life-threatening situations encountered by the Owenses. And we share the issues and concerns they tried to raise in the governments and landowners of the territories where they spent seven years living and studying animals.
At various times this book made me smile. It made me mad. It made me sad. It made me laugh. And it made me wish I could spend a few years of my life studying and living among wildlife as they did.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating account by two inspiring people 25 février 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book has been out for many years, but I just finally got around to reading it. It holds a well-deserved place on the shelf of classic nature writing. Like this book's sequel, Eye of the Elephant (which I read several years ago), the Owens have written an incredible account of their experiences studying wildlife in Africa. Cry of the Kalahari is the story of their seven years in the Kalahari desert, living among the lions, hyenas, jackals, and myriad of other creatures that share this doomed habitat. The Owens' dedication and hard work are truly amazing and their insights into the lives of these animals are fascinating. As the authors write in their foreward to the book, it is not intended to be a authoritative scientific account of the Kalahari ecosystem, but a layman's introduction to the animals of this unique place on earth. For readers who enjoy nature writing, this should be on one's list of must-read books

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No Words To Describe... 26 juillet 2004

This book was absolutely fantastic. I laughed, I cried, and I felt like I was living in the Kalahari along with the authors and their wild friends. When I finished the book, I logged onto Amazon to see if the Owens' had written any more books on Africa. Couldn't find any, but I promise if they write any more, I will buy the hardback! Enjoy this wonderful book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good Read but the Start of a Dangerous Trend 24 février 2006
Par LionLady - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is not a new book; I read it years ago and enjoyed it. I would have given it 5 stars then. But when I re-read it last year, I realized it belongs alongside the Timothy Treadwell books/films and the Ian Hamilton (elephants) documentaries/books, about people endangering the very animals they love through relentlessly habituating them to people and pestering them to the point where Hamilton and the Owens', at least, are lucky to have escaped with a whole skin. This whole trend toward getting as close as possible to large dangerous animals is so detrimental to the animals themselves that it infuriates me.

The Owens' lions, used to people letting them roam around camp and sit down among them, and anthropomorphized with cute names like Muffin, were clearly going to get into trouble the first time they met other, less starry-eyed people in the Kalahari or in the villages and towns surrounding it. The Owens did them a real disservice.

That being said, and if you can ignore that aspect of it, this remains an interesting read - the camplife and the desert landscape are fascinating, and I believe that, at the time the authors carried out their project, the dangers of habituation, etc., were still not fully understood...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read while in the Kalahari 29 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I took this book with me on my own exploration into this great desert and was inspired by the book's wonderful decriptions and insights.
Now, I simply re-read the book everytime I need to visit Africa in my mind. For those people who wish to explore and experience (non-tourist) Africa this is a great place to start.
