Inspired by Angela Scott’s love of photography and the work of philosopher Joseph Campbell, Sacred Nature: Life’s Eternal Dance is a poignant testament to our vanishing wilderness. Jonathan and Angela Scott have spent much of their adult lives working in the greatest wildlife haven on earth: a slice of wild Africa that straddles the Kenya-Tanzania border and is known as the Mara-Serengeti. This ‘land of endless space’ is home to myriad wild creatures, reminding us of the time when man roamed savannah Africa in search of food and shelter alongside the great beasts.

Jonathan and Angela have made their names documenting the lives of lions, leopards and cheetahs in this kingdom of predators, recording every aspect of the big cats’ character and existence in drawings, photographs and television programmes. They achieve an intimacy with their subjects that is born of infinite patience and an insatiable fascination with the lives of both animals and people. Increasingly concerned by the impact of the burgeoning human population on the earth’s wild places, Jonathan and Angela have written a powerful narrative evoking our historical relationship to the natural world in an attempt to inspire future generations to rediscover the sacredness in nature. To do this, we must rekindle the reverence that our hunting ancestors felt for their animal brethren. We must speak out on behalf of our last wild places and their extraordinary denizens, nurturing that indefinable sense of spirituality that is born of nature and that makes us human.

More than anything, this book is a tribute to Angela’s vision as a photographer and artist. It was she who kept the idea for Sacred Nature alive for many years, sparking the interest of son David, who created a design concept of extraordinary subtlety and flair. The result combines words and images in a powerful testament to ‘the last place on earth’.
