The Selous in Africa – A Long Way From Anywhere is a lavish 276-page visual exploration of the spectacular but little known Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. The Selous is Africa’s oldest and largest protected area.  The Selous in Africa, with nearly 400 beautiful photographs by Robert J. Ross, not only includes the large mega-fauna typically seen in a photographic book on African wildlife but also shows the fantastic and often overlooked small creatures as well as the landscapes that make an ecosystem whole.  Original essays on the history and ecology of the Selous are complimented by generous excerpts from Sand Rivers, Peter Matthiessen’s beautifully written book on a safari he undertook in the Selous. The Selous in Africa is the culmination of more than six years of effort during which Ross explored and photographed the depth and breadth of one of Africa’s most important and least known protected areas. The Selous in Africa – A Long Way From Anywhere will appeal to anyone interested in Africa, wildlife, world-class photography, or armchair travel to one of the last great wilderness areas on Earth.  276 Pages including 6 gatefolds. Dimensions: 10″ x 12.5″.
