Inside the book

The book

Wonderful experience that of Yann and Anne Arthus-Bertrand : live with lions, amongst lions, and for lions. Since 1979, they live with their two children in a small bambou and palm house, in the Masaï-Mara reserve, kingdom of the Lions. Anne and Yann focused on the study of the complex relationships of Lions with their environment, their preys, and with each other, within and out of the kinship circle. Anne and her binoculars, Yann and his camera, both went off looking for their Lions. In this book, you will meet Hook, the one-eyed male, the sleepy Big Vizir, Haddock and his black mane, Sapience, Aurore and Jouvence, the subdued but proud females of the pack. The book allows you to follow them while they hunt, conquer and defend their territory, and also the affection that they give one another. And you will discover that the life of a Lion is not always that of a King…
