CCF COMMEMORATIVE POSTERS
The 2009 CHICAGO RUn for the Cheetah poster
This commemorative poster of the second Run for the Cheetah event displays yet another magnificent image of a cheetah family tracked and photographed for two years in Kenya by photographer Larry Broutman. At Larry's initial contact, the mother featured on this poster had six cubs approximately six weeks old. After 18 months, four cubs have survived and are still living together, but have separated from the mother. In keeping track of the location of the cheetahs, he has been aided by local Maasai, upon whose land the cheetahs have often resided, but maintain an harmonious relationship with the wildlife. Larry has been engaged in wildlife photography since retiring from his career as a university professor and business entrepeneur. His cheetah photographs will soon be featured in Africa Geographic and Larry is also working on a book highlighting his cheetah photography. More of his work can be seen at http://www.broutpix.com/. For gift or special instructions, please use the Comments window on the order form. The poster measures 24x18 inches. Allow 8-10 business days for delivery.

Tears of the Cheetah: The Genetic Secrets of Our Animal Ancestors
"The 14 firsthand evolutionary yarns collected here are the equivalent of genomic Aesop's fables." Publishers Weekly
"By turns passionate, understated, unexpectedly literate and historically astute, O'Brien, head of the National Institutes of Health's Laboratory of Genomic Diversity, is a breath of fresh air: he's written a genetics book that neither probes the ambiguous legacy of genetic engineering nor seeks to entice us with yet another last-word account of the race to map the human genome-and judiciously dispensing with jargon wherever possible, O'Brien's a smooth read as well. The author does not tell us the genetic fable of how the leopard got its spots, but he comes close.... An underlying theme of the book is how these parables illuminate human medicine-how, for example, insights into cat immunodeficiency could lead to a cure for AIDS..." From Publishers Weekly.
