A review of Underdogs – my African wild dog book – features in the latest issue of the magazine Environment. The magazine is a collaboration between some of Africa’s leading environmental organisations, including the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) with whom I worked while photographing Underdogs. The editor of Environment, Dr John Ledger, reviews the book and says:

“This is more than a ‘coffee table’ book because, although it is a large-format hard-cover edition, beautifully illustrated by the author’s excellent photographs, it also has a very informative text that imparts the scientific aspects of Wild Dog conservation…This is a lovely book to have and a very worthwhile read.”

To read the review of Underdogs in full, see the latest issue of Environment online at environmentmag.co.za/ebook/Env-12 or subscribe at environmentmag.co.za. Underdogs is now available across South Africa at leading stores, such as Exclusive Books, Estoril Books and PNA.

Underdogs reviewed in BBC Wildlife…

A review of my new African wild dog book Underdogs features in the February 2012 issue of BBC Wildlife magazine. The book fills the much sought after ‘Picture Book Choice’ slot with the following review:

“This is a book with heart. Photojournalist Neil Aldridge’s love of wild dogs shines through his beautiful images and passionate prose. Majoring on the species’ fight to survive – as poignantly illustrated by alpha female Stellar and her pack – this timely book highlights current conservation efforts, and offers a glimmer of hope for the future.”

This review follows a recent online gallery that can be seen on the magazine’s website discoverwildlife.com. The latest issue of BBC Wildlife is out now and features a touching image of lions by Andy Rouse on the cover. There is a special BBC Wildlife reader offer on Underdogs throughout February through NHBS. Underdogs is also available to buy on my website and on Amazon. With a donation from sales made to wild dog conservation, I urge you to please help this highly endangered carnivore by ordering your copy today.
