“Cheetahs, considered the fastest on land, are now in a plight they don’t understand.
A story of hunger and lost habitat, a mother who hunts but avoids combat.”

Chitraka, a young cheetah mother faces habitat depletion, loss of prey and poaching as she tries to provide for her young cubs. Will Chitraka survive her many challenges?

Themes of predator-prey relationships, human-wildlife interaction and habitat loss make this book a realistic introduction to the plight of the endangered cheetah.
