About the Author

Trevor Jenner is English and has had a multi-faceted career, including a bird and wildlife guide, which has entailed a host of travelling throughout the globe. His quest for birds and mammals has taken him on expeditions to many parts of the world including remote and dangerous places. A travel and natural history writer, Trevor's lifetime of trekking, writing, photographing and researching mammals have culminated in the first field guide to the larger mammals of the Horn of Africa.

Trevor's previous book, Ethiopia Travellers' Handbook, has been a spectacular success owing to his depth of knowledge and attention to detail, which was based upon more than two decades of travel to Ethiopia.

Reviews

Finally, the Horn of Africa has its own dedicated field guide to the larger mammals. This stunning new book is lavishly illustrated and well-designed, with informative texts and accurate maps. The photos are amazing. And it's light enough to slip into your luggage wherever you go. Anyone with an interest in the wildlife of the region needs this book. Nigel Redman, Senior author of Birds of the Horn of Africa; A gem of a guide for anyone fascinated by the Horn of Africa's unusual and unique wildlife. Great design with immaculate images and maps. Craig Rix, Travel Africa Magazine; I wish I had this when I first went to Ethiopia - a hugely needed addition and must have book for anyone interested in the spectacular mammal watching from this still very unexplored region. The where to find mammals section is a real bonus too. Jon Hall, www.mammalwatching.com; A very useful book with some great photography. There is no comparable title on the market so this should be much sought after for travellers to Ethiopia and the other countries of the Horn of Africa. Leon Vlieger, Natural History Book Society
