It features commentary by Dr. Laurie Marker, world renowned authority on cheetahs, and imagery captured by renowned wildlife photographer, Suzi Eszterhas. Through the eyes of the cheetah, this picture book story will bring you, the reader, face to face with some of the rarest and most beautiful images taken of wild cheetah. Equally as powerful, compelling stories and photos will weave a story of the conservation initiatives that are the key to their very survival. “Ever since I first met Dr. Laurie Marker, I have been a fan of her work and share her fascination with the cheetah as an icon of speed and grace. Laurie has devoted her life to learning about the cheetah and using her knowledge to assure the cheetah as a species survives to future generations. Readers of A Future for Cheetahs are not only getting a treasure trove of remarkable images of the cheetah, but also the extraordinary story of what a boots-on-the-ground conservationist is doing to save it from extinction, in her own words.” —Jeff Corwin, Television personality and conservationist “A Future for Cheetahs is a gorgeous and significant book. Amazing and elegant photographs by world-class photographer Suzi Eszterhas are mixed with a haunting narrative of the cheetah’s march for survival penned by guardian angel of the cheetah, Laurie Marker. Any curious world citizen or committed conservationist needs to ingest this book. All will enjoy the wonder and majesty of evolution’s most enriching and skillful creation, the African cheetah, through the lens and words of incomparable witnesses in the plight of a fragile beautiful species.” —Stephen J O’Brien, Author Tears of the Cheetah and Other Tales from the Genetic Frontier
