  • "Erudite, witty, and utterly fascinating, David Quammen's exegesis of the life and habits of four parlous predators - creatures that can and do consume humans - sets a new standard in nature writing.Here we have biology, history, sociology, politics and behaviourism combined in as full and rich a portrait of these animals and their environment as had ever been produced"
