SOME REVIEWS OF LIONTIDE, by CHRISTOPHER MCBRIDE
“……PRIDE OF PLACE…..”
“This is an invaluable insight into lion behaviour, crammed with information and a book that will have pride of place on the shelf of any naturalist, whether amateur or professional”.
John Michell (BUSINESS DAY, 4.6.90)
“……IT TAKES A RARE GIFT……”
It takes a rare gift to combine raw scientific data with a personal vision and belief in things natural to produce a captivating narrative. Chris McBride’s book based on his work in the mystical Savuti Channel area of Botswana is such a work.
While telling a valid yet poignant story it also shows what research on large predators is all about – endless hours of work at night when others are soundly asleep in warm mosquito-proof beds. Liontide is a captivating series of events which clearly tells of the close kinship between the author and the multitude of animals which surrounded him at Savuti. The enigma of the ebb and flow of the lives of these predators mirrors that of the waters of the Savuti which come and go as silently and mysteriously as the lions which feature boldly in this book.
Above all, however, the book is clear evidence of the author’s deep belief in creation and the Creator which mirrors his own thoughts and the actions of the animals around him. Liontide is a compelling and thoroughly enjoying book which teaches without conscious effort.
