    A reviewer

    I read this book years ago, lent it to a friend and never saw it again. But what a book! Kuki Gallman is a true herione. What other woman would give up a comfortable life and go traipsing half-way around the world to start over (literally from stratch!) in Africa, where Nature dictates your life and you're at Her mercy? Not me! But she did. And this is her amazing story.

    Couldn't Put it Down

    My favourite book. For Kuki to go to such a comfortable lifestyle to the hard african life inspired me. The sadness of it also gives it more validilty if she had just lived as she had come. But she has lost so much by being there she almost deserves intruding on Africa and it's people

    Wonderful

    Beautifully written. Emotionally draining, but well worth the trip!

    Highly Recommended!

    Many of the movie critics rated the movie a B or B-, which I don't understand. The critics said the movie contained too much grief for a single film. I guess some movie critics can't handle true stories. True life is much more interesting than fiction and true to life is what makes this story so enthralling.

    OUTRAGOUS!

    It was a heart warming story and its one of the things where the book is better than the movie. And it is so sad that it makes it good. I love it and going to get the movie when it comes out and also I'm going to save the book for a long time.
