I'm going to rate all of the Willard Price books as four stars. Not because I think they're all that special (hell, they're basically the works of an eco-terrorism apologist), but because, when I was twelve, they were THE BEST BOOKS I'D EVER READ. I lapped them up. Loved 'em.
This review goes or the whole series really. I read these books too long ago to actually remember a lot of details of the individual books, a pity. For a crazy little escapist kid like me Willard price was simply transporting and intense while being knowledgeable at the same time. In his pages i learned of the age old enmity between salt water crocs and sharks, the difference between African and Asian elephants, the economics of poaching and sanctuary management, the arts of bushwhacking, snake ...more
Exciting adventure focusing on attempts to catch big game in Uganda. There are numerous fine set pieces, especially the capture of a hippo and three buffalo. The chief historical interest is the sinister Leopard Society, depicted as an unenlightened backlash against colonialism.
African Adventure is an amazing book. The action starts from the first page and continues to the end. The book is intense and once you start you never want to stop. Willard Price ends the book in suspense and ou need to read the next book in the series to find out what happens. This time the two brothers are on their own as their father got injured. they are on the trail of a man-eating leopard and yet they are being hunted by a criminal organisation that takes the name o the Leopard Society.
