    Desperate poachers are stalking the dwindling populations of Zimbabwe's great game parks. Ancient rivalries have ignited modern political ambitions and nothing is certain for those of the old Africa. But for Richard Dunn the stakes are even higher. Into his world comes the beautiful and compelling Steve Hayes, a woman struggling to guard her own dreadful secret. Richard has no choice: Face the consequences of the past and fight for the future. To lose now is to lose everything.

    Australia has more things that can kill you than anywhere else. Nevertheless, Bill Bryson journeyed to the country and promptly fell in love with it. The people are cheerful, their cities are clean, the beer is cold, and the sun nearly always shines.

    Hardly anyone ever leaves Des Moines, Iowa. But Bill Bryson did, and after 10 years in England he decided to go home, to a foreign country. In an ageing Chevrolet Chevette, he drove nearly 14,000 miles through 38 states to compile this hilarious and perceptive state-of-the-nation report on small-town America.

    Lou says: "Bill's sophmoric, condescending journey"
    "Count's stop laughing superbly read ."

    Story
    (40)

    A little over 100 years ago, East Africa was terra incognita to most whites: a land largely unmapped, sparsely settled by Europeans, and teeming with wildlife. It was the hunter-adventurer's paradise, and by the early 20th century, a small, lionhearted clan of explorers and big-game hunters began leading safaris there for money.

    Stephen says: "A fascinating account ...."
    "Wow - It is not just for hunters."

    Would you consider the audio edition of White Hunters to be better than the print version?

    Hard to say


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is down to earth, newer a boring moment, it is all about people and life.


    What does Robert Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm sure will enjoy it again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I could not stop at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Five star all over.Thank you Brian and Robert it was a team work.
