Review:

"I rank Laurens van der Post with the best writers of English - this book confirms my constant admiration and the nobility of his mind" (Raymond Mortimer Sunday Times)

"Bushmen, Africa, the relation of man to animals (beautiful stories about elephants), Japan and Japanese prisoner-of-war camps, the forgiveness of enemies, June, spiritual growth, Churchill, Smuts, Mountbatten... Such a rapid catalogue must omit much of what he talks about, but may give some impression of the book's riches" ( The Times)

"A deeply thoughtful, engrossing book about his fascinatingly varied life and unusual ideas... Refreshingly unconventional, inspiring, optimistic, wise and true" ( Sunday Express)

"Overflows with ideas and insights gained during a long and eventful life" ( Independent)

"No one can write more feelingly of Africa... An experience not to be missed" ( Evening Standard)

From the Author:

Laurens van der Post was born in Africa in 1906. Most of his adult life was spent his time divided between Africa and England. His professions of writer and farmer were interrupted by ten years in the army, behind enemy lines in Abyssinia, the Western Desert and the Far East where he was taken prisoner by the Japanese while commanding a small guerrilla unit. He went straight from prison back to active service in Java. He was awarded the CBE for his services in the field.
