内容紹介

About a year ago, film started to circulate on YouTube® of a remarkable man named Kevin Richardson, an animal custodian in a South African animal park. The film showed Richardson in his day-to-day work, looking some of the world's most dangerous animals directly in the eye, crouching down at their level, playing with them and, sometimes, even kissing them on the nose--all without ever being attacked or injured. The films' popularity skyrocketed and Richardson became an international sensation. In "Part of the Pride", Kevin Richardson tells the story of his life and work, how he grew from a young boy who cared for so many animals that he was called "The Bird Man of Orange Grove" to an adolescent who ran wild and, finally, to a man who is able to cross the divide between humans and predators. As a self-taught animal behaviorist, Richardson has broken every safety rule known to humans when working with these wild animals. Flouting common misconceptions that breaking an animal's spirit with sticks and chains is the best way to subdue them, he uses love, understanding and trust to develop personal bonds with them. His unique method of getting to know their individual personalities, what makes each of them angry, happy, upset, or irritated—just like a mother understands a child—has caused them to accept him like one of their own into their fold. Like anyone else who truly loves animals, Richardson allows their own stories to share center stage as he tells readers about Napoleon and Tau, the two male lions he calls his "brothers"; the amazing Meg, a lioness Richardson taught to swim; the fierce Tsavo who savagely attacked him; and the heartbreaking little hyena called Homer who didn't live to see his first birthday. Richardson also chronicles his work on the feature film "The White Lion" and has a lot to say about the state of lion farming and hunting in South Africa today. In "Part of the Pride", Richardson, with novelist Tony Park, delves into the mind of the big cats and their world to show readers a different way of understanding the dangerous big cats of Africa.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Part of The Pride: My Life Among the Big Cats.... 2017/6/23

A brutally honest account of the life and motivations of a fantastic Lion Whisperer and how he became so great with his giant Pride of Lion and OTHER jungle animal friends...A fascinating read...A Bad Boy turned Great...now that's a wonderful story! And the color pictures are truly beautiful...This man has found his true calling and his true friends and family, and we get to see how he got there. IT also makes one want to someday visit where he works to see him and his dear animal and human friends interacting with love, caring and great understanding....People like this man COULD establish more peace on this planet just by showing us how to "read" and understand and love creatures who might otherwise scare us, but who are really just as afraid of us as we would be of them...He is a great animal spokesperson too.

What a great title. What a great story! What an amazing courageous man to step into the world of a massive predator like the African Lions.
Kevin Richardson says people say he has a gift. He does not feel he does. The gift he has, is AWARENESS. This makes him pay attention to details, sensations, his gut, his unconscious mind revealing truths in the NOW. Its being in tune or in touch with who you are...which these days is so hard for so many. He lives from his heart and soul and opens a door for greater realities to unfold. It is a beautiful thing to see him engage with his pride of lions and lionesses and all his other hyena friends. He associated with all kinds of animals growing up. This helped him to NURTURE...to care at a deep knowing level. We are all capeable of these qualities....IF we open up to them. They have some great photos in the book with Kevin and his lions. I love them. I had seen him on youtube before I read this book. He is awesome. His courage is amazing! His strong spirit grips your heart...and squeezes your compassionate out for these predators. I am a LEO the lion so I already relate to these noble giants in my own way. Get this book...and then follow your heart which leads you plunging into his Wild world with more
movies and dvds.

The guy is a legend in his own mind. Some of the events described in the book are so irresponsible as to boggle the mind. I've been to the Lion Park Mr. Richardson worked at... it has been involved in a number of incidents that were not mentioned in the book. You can "pet" lion cubs or buy a lion skin in the gift shop. Again something not mentioned in the book. Funny thing: the fate of all those "petable" cubs is glossed over as well. If you are into "Aren't I great" stories with a lot of repetition and no real detail... go ahead. If you were hoping for an insight into those youtube videos showing a guy rolling around with lions and how he does it - not so much.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Amazing story 2009/10/27
投稿者 Ingeborg S. Skliros - (Amazon.com)

I was curious about Kevin Richardson when I first saw some videos of him with his lions on YouTube, so when this book came out, I knew I had to read it. It is a compelling account of a man who has a unique approach to dealing with wild predators - whether they be lions, hyenas, leopards or jackals. But it's his extraordinary relationship with his lions that brings this story to life. A child who was always interested in creatures - creepy-crawly to mammals - Kevin grows up experimenting with different ways to relate to his charges. He moves on instinct alone, and achieves extraordinary results, much to the surprise of other lion wranglers. He has his share of close encounters, but never blames the animal, but rather himself for not reading the lion's mood and behavior correctly. This is a wonderful, readable account of of an exceptional man and his lions and hyenas. Highly recommended!

Excellent book! I am fond and jealous of the relationship Kevin has with his lions. The book opens up your mindset of how Lions are and the beauty they have. Also, informs you of how and why lions get hunted in Africa
