Hierdie stories is inheems soos kremetartbome, onderhoudend soos 'n kuier om 'n hardekoolvuur.
Die skrywer en sy vrou het 'n huis in Sabiepark, 'n private natuurreservaat aan die Sabierivier, waar wilde diere name het, soos die luiperd Vin Diesel en die vlakvark Brood. Waar 'n hiëna vir aandete by die stoeptafel opdaag. Hulle het met die jare boekgehou van buitengewone verskynings en gebeurtenisse. Sy stories oor Sabiepark en die Wildtuin blaai die veld oop en gee ons 'n intieme kykie op wilde diere. Dit stem tot nadenke, soos die uitstekende “Skurwe slaapmaats” waar die leser leer hoe om 'n olifant te benader: met groot nederigheid, neergeslane oë en geknakte nek. Daar is interessante inligting, soos dat baldadige jong olifantbulle uit die trop verban word totdat hulle geleer het om hulle te gedra. Dat olifantkalwe 100 tot 120 kg kan weeg.
Die stories word gekenmerk deur fyn waarneming, 'n droë humorsin en buitengewone woordvaardigheid.

World-renowned wildlife trackers Alex van den Heever and Renias Mhlongo have spent more than two decades working together, tracking leopards and lions at Londolozi, jaguars in South America and grizzly bears in the United States.
In Changing a Leopard's Spots, Alex shares stories from his life with Renias, including the successes, failures, dramas, laughter, disappointments and highlights. As they experience numerous adventures, Alex and Renias learn to trust and rely on one another - both in order to stay alive, in a literal sense because of the sometimes dangerous environments in which they work, but also to develop a deep and meaningful relationship.

By challenging each other and learning from one another they break down social, cultural, racial and personal boundaries and obstacles that often divide South Africans; and in the process, the two men forge an unbreakable bond.

Waking up to roaring lions near her doorless dung hut; encountering elephants while walking with other women to fetch water from a distant spring; realising that older Himba people saw themselves as part of nature, not as separated from it nor at its apex ... These were just some of the experiences that would change the way Margaret Jacobsohn thought about wildlife conservation - and our modern deficiency in ecological intelligence. So, the Capetonian journalist and environmental writer turned researcher became a Namibian and helped pioneer an African way of doing conservation and tourism.

Famed for its spectacular landscapes and gloriously unclad geology, Namibia is a country that wears its skeleton on the outside, the author says.

Similarly, her story is as gritty and real as Namib sand. The conflicts and mishaps, the triumphs and breakthroughs - what it takes to break paradigms and do decades of community based conservation in remote and inaccessible places, earning some of the top international environmental awards along the way.

A book that will make you think.
