You can now pre-order my book Snöleopard [Snow Leopard] which I have written together with the Swedish author and photographer Jan Fleischmann. It will be released in Swedish in mid October with an English version in the planning. Click here to come to an order form [in Swedish].
I was just reached by the sad news that Peter Matthiessen has passed away. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Peter Matthiessen, but reading his book “The Snow Leopard” from 1979 many years ago has inspired me to write my own book on the large cat of the mountains.
In “The Snow Leopard”, Peter Matthiessen journey together with biologist George Schaller to study blue sheep and maybe glimpse the elusive snow leopard as they travel the mountains of Nepal.
After reading Peter Matthiessen’s adventure I have always felt drawn to the high mountains. In 2012 I visited the Himalaya and was lucky enough to glimpse the cat in the wild.
Mine and Jan Fleischmann’s book “Snöleopard” (Snow Leopard) is due in Swedish in autumn 2014.
We have created a Facebook page for the snow leopard book, due in the fall of 2014. On the Facebook page you can read more on our work with the book as we will update it with our progress. Jan has just, for instance, come home from northern India seeing several snow leopards and getting really good pictures!

The book will first be published in Swedish with an English version hopefully coming later.
There is an article on the snow leopard forum in the latest issue of Våra Rovdjur (nr 4/2013). I interview Brad Rutherford, director of the Snow Leopard Trust for the article. The article is in Swedish. There is also an article on the Iberian wolf in the magazine where I interview José Lopez. You can read the full article on the Iberian wolf here.
