About the Author:

Erik Campbell lives in Papua, Indonesia, working as a technical writer for an American mining company. His poems and essays have appeared in numerous prestigious literary magazines, including The Iowa Review, Tin House, The Massachusetts Review, The Virginia Quarterly Review, Nimrod, New Delta Review, and Rattle. He has been nominated for a 2005 Pushcart Prize in poetry.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9-- A plane crash in Tanzania leaves Chris responsible for the survival of his father and the pilot, both badly injured. After a suspenseful confrontation with a pride of lions, the boy sets off on foot to search for help. His fate is strangely intertwined with that of an aging male lion who is losing control of his pride. As the action develops, the two grow increasingly conscious of the vague bond that links their fates, and each saves the other's life at least once. The narrative shifts fairly smoothly from Chris's point of view to the lion's, and also follows the actions of Mike Taylor, a tour guide who is pursuing poachers in the same region. The novel is full of vivid descriptions of the life and land of Africa, although at times the flowery prose disrupts the flow of the story. The opening chapters that lead up to the plane crash are rather slow, but after that the pace is fast and the story compelling. Chris shows bravery and ingenuity throughout his adventure, but never comes fully alive as a character. While other survival stories, such as Paulsen's Hatchet (Bradbury, 1987), focus more on the growth and development of the hero, The Place of Lions is more concerned with the environment. Overall, the exciting action in a fascinating setting, coupled with the intriguing spiritual element, make this a worthwhile and thought-provoking book. --Steven Engelfried, Pleasanton Library, CA
