Read from September 28 to October 01, 2012

Just arrived from Japan through BM.

An enjoyable reading after has read too many "serious" books.

This is the first book of the series The Ballantyne Novels describing the first Rhodesia historical facts when slavery was still taking place to North and South America. Every slave was sold by 20 dollars and these ships are able to transport thousands of them in very inhumane conditions.

A very touching moment can be described when Robyn Ballantyne find his father debilitated by the disease and being treated with affection by the local native.

The next book of this series is Men of Men.

So far, River God is the best book I've read of this author.
