KIRKUS REVIEW

A neatly packaged homily told in Wibberley's jogging journalese about yea-saying in the wilderness. Heroic Father Felix, whose tiny mission serves inhabitants of a remote East African village, becomes a cause in the war between Bantu Royalists and Great Britain-backed pan-tribal Republican blacks. Father Felix elects to stay in his jungle in the face of Bantu invasions in order to call world attention to the need to make a stand for a ""place of peace."" The narrator/newsman goes with the Republican rescue corps; brave men die; and Father Felix disappears for all the right reasons. It's the tale of a good egg unsullied by war--sunny side up.
