Unique photo book: thrilling texts combined with extraordinary and rare photos Not yet published in a book: extraordinary photos of the shy sloth bear – the model for Balu Who doesn’t know Kipling’s Jungle Book, ingeniously turned into a film by Walt Disney Studios? On foot, by bicycle, in a jeep or on tamed elephants, Axel Gomille tracks the wild role models for the Jungle Book animals in India. He stirringly tells of the adventures he experienced while searching for Shir Khan, Balu and Baghira. During a period of 15 years, this fascinating photo book emerged – the results are unique photos, thrilling observations and fascinating stories -- and the realization that humans and wild animals can still live together peacefully today.
