“By saving the world’s top predators, we save huge forests, rivers, wildlife, and ultimately, our planet.”—Steve Winter
Join award-winning National Geographic photographer Steve Winter for a thrilling journey into the world of big cats. From trekking high in India’s Himalaya in search of rare snow leopards and stalking the elusive jaguar through Latin American jungles to chronicling the nocturnal activities of the “American lion” or cougar, this determined explorer ventures far and wide to come face-to-face with his subjects. This is no easy task. Since many big cat species are in danger of extinction, they have good reason to avoid humans.
