Back to Africa with the Courteneys, and safari treks and exciting action, Smith is back to his "old form" after his blip on the good writing radar screen with Quest! As always, Smith weaves much historical information into the novel, and the sections about Teddy Roosevelt and his safaris is an eyeopener about how the "big game" hunters traveled. Extremely captivating --- I've spent nights unable to get off the Sereghetti, chasing bull elephants, and dancing around the campfire, with the chant of "just one more chapter" in the background....

Jcanavino I have never read Smith's Africa books, but after reading Lynn's delightful review, I can hardly wait to begin "dancing around the campfire" myself. I will definitely check out these series. J.C.
