A stunning, new project from Craig Hatkoff about a remarkable lion king named Cecil and his pride.

At Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe's largest game reserve, more than 100 species of mammals live together.

Lions, giraffes, zebras, elephants, leopards, and rhinos roam freely through vast deserts, forests, and grasslands. Cecil the Lion was the king of them all. There are no fences or walls like in a zoo. It's a diverse ecosystem, but there's a delicate balance. When something changes, it sends a ripple throughout the whole park. No one knew it yet, but a ripple was about to be felt around the world.

This is the tale of Cecil's dramatic rise to power and an unlikely partnership with his rival, Jericho, that would eventually save his pride. The book is filled with stunning, full-color photos taken by Brent Stapelkamp, a lion researcher for the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford University. Brent has spent years tracking, studying, and photographing Cecil and his pride.
