    Book details


With over 240 breathtaking photographs and footage from the landmark BBC series, The Hunt captures the dramatic encounters of predator and prey in an entirely new light. Featuring the extraordinary strategies of a huge range of predators, from cheetahs and African wild dogs to killer whales and polar bears, these images and stories will revolutionise what you thought you knew about life in the wild.

Whether through speed, stamina or complex subterfuge, each creature’s strategy is honed to its environment – and remarkable adaptations mean that the hunted often can, and do, outwit their hunters. It’s a life-or-death duel where each animal’s skills are stretched to the very limit.

The final chapter of the book goes behind the scenes to recount the adventures of the production teams as they themselves stalk their quarry – and are sometimes stalked – to discover never-before-seen species and previously undocumented behaviours.

From the producers of Frozen Planet and Planet Earth, The Hunt reveals in astonishing detail the most surprising and significant events in the natural world.

The duels between hunters and hunted are as dramatic as any event in the natural world. from the Foreword by David Attenborough--David Attenborough"This work is a marriage of brilliant photography and informative prose about all aspects of the fascinating relationship between predators and their prey.

    Excellent

  • By Asha on 4 June 2017

    Brilliant condition - the book itself is amazing and will be a wonderful present for my Attenborough-obsessed son. The quality of the photographs is astounding and the explanations are perfect - the ratio of photos to text is very good.

    This is an absolutely stunning book with some brilliant images and its a wonderful accompaniment to the TV series. I have read a few books by Alastair Fothergill that have accompanied his various TV series and they have all been great, but for me this one is just slightly above the rest - excellent and very highly recommended.

    Bought for my 5yr old grandson who is animal mad - he is well informed and can hold an intelligent discussion about animals in general. He thinks the book is fantastic. A lot has to be read to him but it is also a vehicle to teach him to read. I had a sneak preview of it and think it is fantastic, especially for its photography. A great buy!
