"My book helps people to face their fears and do things they never thought they could do. I have always had a philosophy that it is worse to let my fear stop me, then to fail at the task." This book was based on the author's actual life experiences, in which she conquered her own fears relied on her intuition to survive and became stronger for it. It's a fascinating series of autobiographical stories told by Pat Toth-Smith. The story telling pulls you into her perilous world, where you share the strange and sometimes dangerous situations she navigates as she travels the highways and wilderness areas of North America. In the end it all seems worth it when we see the results of her labors, the stunning wildlife photos, the vivid observations of the animal’s behavior and the hard earned knowledge gleaned from learning on the job. Wild Among Us is unique in that it has the aesthetic beauty of a fine art photo book combined with the powerful stories of pursuit, danger and life-threatening wildlife encounters.

    AMAZING!!! When I won this book I thought for sure it was just going to be a lot of photographs which to me was fine. Instead what I got was an amazing, brilliant, and outstanding set of photographs combined with the interesting stories that go along with the shots. Sometimes the shots she was taking were even dangerous to get and yet here they are displayed in all their gorgeousness. I love this for its wonderful stories and experiences as much as I love it for its photography!

This is a coffee-table book of wildlife photographs, with chapters for each kind of animal and the stories of how the photographer got the pictures. There are indeed some lovely photographs in here. The stories will be familiar to anyone interested in wildlife photography. The elaborate preparations, the missed chances, the miserable conditions and the brilliant moments when that one perfect shot is available. Ms. Toth-Smith has several terrifying encounters with wildlife, but usually comes out okay, except for that one time with the mosquito. (There are no mosquito photographs in this volume.) Depressingly, the photographer details how she needs to take extra precautions from human threats because she is a woman who often travels alone. Lucky so far, but a few terrifying moments. The book is kind of expensive at $45 suggested retail price; consider it as a gift for people who love wildlife photography or animals in general.
