The interplay of the land, the herbivores (prey), and the lions (predators) fills the rest of the section, with a nice description of the hunt. A final section examines the relationship between lions and humans. The importance of lions’ sociality, unique among cats, is woven throughout the text. Wolfe’s magnificent photographs bring the book to life and help recommend this nice introduction.
