Henderson has come to Africa on a spiritual safari, a quest for the truth. His feats of strength, his passion for life, and, most importantly, his inadvertant success in bringing rain have made him a god-like figure among the tribes.

Review:

a A kind of wildly delirious dream made real by the force of Bellowas rollicking prose and the offbeat inventiveness of his language.a
a"Chicago Tribune"
a Bellowas aura of fable is constantly washed over by humor, impulsive creation, and actual, turbulent detail.a
