The Photo Ark; One Man's Quest to Document the World's Animals by Joel Sartore

This is mostly about the pictures, and…wow!  Those pictures!  They're beautiful, amazing, and paired so cleverly together.  I love, love, love it. 

Sometimes I wish the captions had a little more about the animals, but the point of the book is more to capture their likenesses and make us care…so we can then research for ourselves.  The few tidbits included are fascinating.   

I also enjoyed the written sections, like the forewords by Harrison Ford, Douglas H. Chadwick, and the author, the sections about different conservation heroes, and the behind-the-scenes peaks into the process.  

This is an extremely beautiful book.  Highly recommended. 

5 beautiful stars
