Cape Town - In The Big Cat Man: An Autobiography, BBC's Big Cat Diary presenter Jonathan Scott reveals the fascinating – sometimes painful – story of his journey of becoming one of the world's most respected wildlife presenters, writers and photographers. He published the book concurrently with Sacred Nature.

From a childhood spent on the family farm in Berkshire to travelling 6 000 miles overland in Africa and starting a career as a wildlife artist and safari guide, Jonathan's tale is that of a lifelong love affair with the natural world. And a fervent desire to see it nurtured and preserved.
