From the cover: “Hunters of the Plains is the second title in the series of books jointly conceived by the ‘World of Survival’ television programme’s team and W.H. Alien. The aim is to tell the fascinating story of not only the animals who are the natural subject of ‘survival’ films, but of the people intimately concerned with their story. In March 1977 John Pearson was commissioned to film a one-hour television special on the hunting animals of the African plains — wild dogs, hyena, lion and cheetah — and their prey. All predators face the same problem: how to catch something that does not want to be caught and often both predator and prey live virtually side by side in the same habitat. This book tells of the things that John Pearson saw while he was making the film and what he felt about them; about the problems that arose and how they were solved. So besides giving a graphic account of the animals, their lives and their world, Hunters of the Plains is a personal account of John Pearson’s journey through a world which within a very short time may well have disappeared forever.”
