Deirdre Jackson works in the Department of Manuscripts at the British Library and is a Fellow of the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).
'will appeal even to those who would never normally pick up a book on the natural world.' - Mary Beard, The Guardian 'Books of the Year' 'Considering that 30-odd titles have appeared in Reaktion's superbly realised Animals series, it has taken a surprising time to reach the king of beasts. Still, it was worth the wait. Jackson has produced a fascinating volume of leonine revelations ... she provides plenty for big cat lovers to purr about.' - The Independent
