This book is filled with extraordinary information about lions.Many of the incidents in this book are gathered from conversations at African campfires with the great veterans of the bush and museum researchers.
Others are some of the great writers on Africa as well as Coheleach's own experiences, which he records in art as well as dramatic text. The art features old and new paintings: some are loose, painterly pieces, others very tightly drawn works with a lot of detail; some have quiet moods, others have plenty of action and tension.
There are little watercolour sketches and simple pencil drawings. These pages also are filled with his impressions of African lions in words. The lion is a splendid animal that leaves many different impressions on us. Some focus on the gentle lion, while others see its ferocious side. Lions kill to eat and are very good at it. While this may be the only aspect of lions covered in pulp magazines, it is not all apparent in most media coverage that we currently see on lions. When Coheleach started this book, he heard that in one year in East Africa, in the 1970s no fewer than thirteen people were taken out of vehicles and killed by lions!
