Africa's Great Rift Valley
By Nigel Pavitt

208 pages, 9 5/8 x 11 1/4"
Spanning some 3,500 miles of the African continent, from Ethiopia in the north to Mozambique in the south, the Great Rift Valley is home to an astounding array of flora and fauna, including the highest concentration of grassland animals anywhere and three of the world's four great apes - chimpanzees, bonobos, and gorillas. Nigel Pavitt, who has lived in the region for 45 years, has traveled this wild terrain across searing salt flats and up ice-capped mountains, and in this exciting addition to Abrams' list of best-selling books about Africa, he shows why this diverse region of outstanding natural beauty is a popular destination for travelers.
Covering evolution, indigenous cultures, and European exploration, Pavitt's text and stunning photographs make this the finest volume on the Valley ever published.
