Meerkat Manor: Flower Of The Kalahari (English Edition) Kindle电子书
The life of the Meerkats - from the highly successful TV series, and soon to be released major feature film
MEERKAT MANOR is the true-life story of Flower, the heroine of the successful television series, and the dominant female of Whiskers group.
Through words and superb photographs, the reader becomes closely involved in the life-or-death struggles, just like a soap opera, of this curiously attractive tribe.
MEERKAT MANOR not only describes what meerkats do, but explains why they do it, providing important insights into the working of other animal societies, including humans.
'They look cute and their teamwork has led some to suggest they are ideal role models for humans, but ... if MEERKAT MANOR is billed as a soap opera, it is one scripted by Quentin Tarantino' Mail on Sunday.

Of course, the major focus of the book is on the meerkats themselves. The book does an excellent job of outlining the lives of meerkats, and often compares and contrasts meerkats to other animals. There are a lot of fascinating details that have never been mentioned in the show, such as how Zaphod came to join the Whiskers (when I read it, I literally put the book down and said, "Wow, really?!").
The book is fairly large and of high-quality construction. It feels similar to a good coffee table book. The book includes hundreds of beautiful pictures, including many full-page and two-page spreads.
All-in-all, it's an excellent read for anyone who has an interest in nature.
Aside from more detailed insider information (written by Cambridge
Professor Tim Clutton-Brock) there are maps of the Manor divided into
the territories held by the major meerkat clans, a chronology of Flower's life, geneological notes on Flower's children, and full-color pictures on nearly every page. Prof. Clutton-Brock has been
studying the meerkats of this area since 1993 and has done a marvelous
job of organizing and delivering a thorough and enjoyable discussion
of all things meerkat, and of Flower in particular.
I highly recommend this book for all meerkat lovers. It is worth every
penny. I know you won't be disappointed.
I was especially interested in reading this book to learn the truth of Flower's death. I was very disturbed when I heard that the show was a set-up and the events were skewed by editing. This book sheds light on what really happened to her. Her death is tragic enough; I don't understand why the show would give us such blatantly false information. For those of you who don't know the real events surrounding Flower's death, I won't spoil the ending for you. Read this book for answers.
