it was amazing
Read in June, 2008

I quite liked this book - I stumbled on by accident looking at an advertisment for Barnes and Noble that listed the latest book in this series, and I am so glad I decided to find the first book and read it. The writing is engaging and Botswana and the African peoples are so intersting to read about, even in a fictional context such as this book. I felt the author did a great job decribing the land, the people, the traditions, the changes, and how people related, even though interpersonal conversations were not extensive. A lovely story - I will certainly read the rest and probably buy the whole lot of them eventually - he is an author I will keep up with.
