The book was easy to follow and understand and I liked the theme of the story too – it is 4.5 stars from me for this one for rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – highly recommended and a really fun story!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dougie Arnold’s decision, as a young teacher, to move to Kenya was to change his life. Teaching in four different international schools, the last of which he set up from scratch for the then leader of the Kenyan opposition, Ken Matiba, he fell in love with the country. Some years later, the President’s family, the Kenyattas, asked him to be head of their prep school but his father’s cancer prevented a return to Africa.
Half way through his fifteen years in Kenya he took two years out of the classroom and helped to run and market a game reserve on the edge of the Rift Valley, broadcasting some of his exploits on BBC radio and qualifying as a pilot. Wildlife and its protection became a passion.
Returning to the UK he spent eighteen years as deputy head of a leading London prep school but took early retirement in order to write. The influence of Africa is core to his work. An illustrated children’s book, Invisible Us, is due out in September and Tusker, a novel on elephant poaching, at the end of the year.
