 Leopard in my lap, Michaela Denis - photographs by Armand Denis - This is the thrilling record of seven safaris - seven unique journeys in different parts of the world, among people and lands of infinite variety and startling contrast. Armand Denis, the world-famous explorer and motion picture producer, is considered to be the finest phographer of animals in the world. He and his beautiful wife are known to millions of British televiewers because of their exicting programmes, Filming in Africa. In this book, Mrs Denis tells the fascinating story of her career, concentrating on the various expeditions she and her husband have undertaken since 1948. They have roamed the jungles and the wild, remote places of the world to capture, with their cameras, rare animals, strange sights and primitive peoples. Wonderful adventures, weird experiences and hair-raising escapes have befallen them, and what makes their exploits all the more remarkable is the fact that they have never carried a lethal weapon. The South American expedition, during which the Denises were married, included a visit to the Colorado Indians of Ecuador. In complete contrast was Michaela's first contact with Afrika, its animals and people, on a journey to King Solomon's Mines. Ever eager to seek out and study the lives of little-known tribes, the Denises have journeyed to New Guinea to make friends of the Chimbu, a Stone Age people, and to Central Australia where they have lived with the Aborigines. edition W.H.

Leopard in my lap, Michaela Denis - photographs by Armand Denis - Livre illustré de nombreuses photographies. This is the thrilling record of seven safaris - seven unique journeys in different parts of the world, among people and lands of infinite variety and startling contrast. Armand Denis, the world-famous explorer and motion picture producer, is considered to be the finest phographer of animals in the world. He and his beautiful wife are known to millions of British televiewers because of their exicting programmes, Filming in Africa. In this book, Mrs Denis tells the fascinating story of her career, concentrating on the various expeditions she and her husband have undertaken since 1948. They have roamed the jungles and the wild, remote places of the world to capture, with their cameras, rare animals, strange sights and primitive peoples. Wonderful adventures, weird experiences and hair-raising escapes have befallen them, and what makes their exploits all the more remarkable is the fact that they have never carried a lethal weapon. 

On one safari in Central Africa, the unarmed Denises captured an 800 lb. wild sealion, and once, in Austalia, still without guns, they netted 68 crocrodiles in a reptile-infested pool. 

The South American expedition, during which the Denises were married, included a visit to the Colorado Indians of Ecuador. In complete contrast was Michaela's first contact with Afrika, its animals and people, on a journey to King Solomon's Mines. 

Ever eager to seek out and study the lives of little-known tribes, the Denises have journeyed to New Guinea to make friends of the Chimbu, a Stone Age people, and to Central Australia where they have lived with the Aborigines. 

They have brought back memorable film records, and have garnered an inexhaustible store of grafic reminiscences and lively anecdotes. Michaela Denis is the chronicler of their adventu'res, and she here tells the fascinating story with a verve and sparkle that reflect her own vivid personality. 

Armand Denis's pictures of animals, scenery and natives, which illustrate this book, are among the best photographs ever published in a work of this type. 

The seal was set on the Denises' fame when, in February this year, they were awarded the Daily Mail Oscar for the best documentary or factual television programme of the year.

This is not just another travel book, or another animal book, but a work of rich and varied fare. Leopard in my lap is, in fact, that very rare thing, a classic of real-life adventure.
