The Marsh Lions, first published by Angie and Jonathan in 1982 with co-author Brain Jackman, portrayed a vivid picture of life and death on the African savannah through the story of a pride of lions in Kenya’s world-famous Masai Mara game reserve. They were the most successful group to be filmed for Big Cat Diary, the BBC’s hugely successful TV series, The Big Cat Diary camera teams allowed millions of viewers to observe the ongoing saga of the Marsh pride at a time when lions were fast disappearing all over Africa. The Marsh Lions is a powerful reminder of what the world stands to lose if the big cats were to vanish forever and highlights the need to cherish the Mara as one of the most beautiful of the earth’s wild places. Jonathan and Angie bring the story up to date with the pride as it is now, alongside photos of the new lions. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary Bradt Publishers has re-issued the book with a new introduction, Epilogue and colour plates by Angie Scott.
The authors will be signing copies of their book after their presentation on the Swarovski Optic stand throughout the Birdfair and on the Bradt stand Marquee 2 Stand 24 at 12.00 – 12.30.
