“Preserving the Serengeti is as much about saving our humanity, our link to nature and our own ancient past, as it is about stopping an environmental tragedy. Boyd’s book, Serengeti: the Eternal Beginning covers it all very well.” Richard Engel, Chief Foreign Correspondent, NBC NEWS
“Boyd Norton has captured the magic of this ancient and majestic ecosystem. Through superb and deeply sensitive photographs and compelling accounts of his experiences there he introduces its animals and people. Serengeti: the Eternal Beginning is profoundly moving – you will understand why it is so important to preserve this place for generations to come.” Jane Goodall, Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace.
“What manner of insanity would lead us to destroy our own cradle. A cradle that still brings forth so much life. That is the Serengeti. And it’s richness and wonder are under great threat. Boyd Norton’s book, Serengeti, shows us this magical land in all its splendor, and demonstrates how we might better know it and preserve it”. Ed Begley, Jr., actor, eco-activist
