Secret Jungle is a photographic record of one woman's determination to reveal the beauties of a vibrant yet endangered world. Nicole Viloteau has spent over twenty-five years exploring the world's jungles, from Gabon to Australia, from Madagascar to Brazil. This book presents a selection of some of the most dramatic encounters and experiences of her travels. Taking the form of simple, poetic, sketches of jungle scenes, Viloteau's text describes the pure emotion experienced traveling alone in the heart of nature. Yet it is the photographs that are the most compelling: vivid close-ups of exotic flowers, almost abstract in their graphic patterns and bold colors, rare tree-frogs and lizards, their skin glistening with poison, snakes with glittering scales and jewel-like eyes.

The book is divided into thematic chapters, illustrating the remarkable adaptability of jungle flora and fauna and the demands made upon them by their environment. With full-color photographs throughout, Secret Jungle presents a visually stunning world that is vanishing all too quickly.
