Peter Mathiessen is an American award winning writer as well as a naturalist and explorer. This book tells of his extensive travels in eastern and southern Africa. He writes of several journeys he takes with other people, such as primatologist Gilbert Boese and ecologist David Western. Not only do we see African wildlife through his eyes, but we also are exposed to the oppression of human lives through terrible political regimes. A fascinating and well written novel.
