KIRKUS REVIEW

This is so unfamiliar a setting for American readers, that it may limit the appeal of these animal stories, vouched for as fundamentally true by the author, who personally observed and experienced most of the incidents. The background is Africa -- the animals are unusual in nature stories, -- a baboon, man- taught to fight; a giant eagle owl; a ratel or honey-badger; a baby rhino; the battle of the lion and the porcupine; a hyena; a koodoo; a lemur -- tales told by one who loves nature and the veld.
