From the forward:
As an adult, I had the great fortune to visit Africa a few times. I saw, in Kruger National Park in South Africa, the images that, that Mexican artist had seen in his imagination. In Kenya and Tanzania, traveling with my colleagues from Mad Magazine, my memories came alive when I saw Jack Davis, George Woodbridge and Bob Clark sketching in the wilds of the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.
Those memories have kept my imagination and respect for the artists, that from my infancy had made me understand the divine right of our brothers of the animal kingdom to live in freedom.
