    A good story, worth reading.

    I found this book delightful and compelling. The scenes of the drama are still vivid in my mind: the village, the big city, the wilderness, the club, the lake. Once I started reading "Brothers of the Wind", I enjoyed a mixture of learning and entertainment that was sustained right through to the last page. David Weaver has crafted an excellent story that has plenty of action and adventure and takes place on the banks of "the bonding river of friendship and honor". Well worth the read.

    An entertaining novel!

    Brothers of the Wind is an interesting novel about two young boys living in an African tribe and their complicated lives. The story has several twists and turns that will keep the reader interested and in suspense all the way through. I've known the author now for over a decade. As a fellow golfer I never would have guessed that Dave could write a book so interesting and enjoyable to read. If you like a novel that will keep you interested and guessing all the way thru and at the same time add a bit of luck and fate into the mix, you'll love this book. It's easy enjoyable reading.

    A HIDDEN JEWEL!!

    Surprising relevant in today's headlines, this book is particularly noteworthy during February's Black History Month, and also of course in view of Barack Obama's historical ascendency to the Presidency-and his own family roots in Kenya. The author, David Weaver, is evidently quite well versed in East African tribal customs and folklore. He has done a masterful job in presenting this tale of young Kenyans and the challenges they face in making the move from a tribal society to an urban based environment and ultimately, adulthood. A good read, and a "feel good" experience.

    Africa revisited

    This is an exciting novel that explores the coming-of-age theme as it plays out in the new Africa, with its competing ideas about the modern world and deep-rooted tribal heritages. Sometimes it is the old traditions that spur the action in this adventure-packed novel, and at other times it is as simple as greed and revenge. The novel is extremely informative about recent African developments in archeology and it has an air of authenticity in the way the author uses various African terms (with their translation) throughout the novel. It contains a thorough examination of the motivations of the adolescent in Africa and the perils that he faces in this very complex and dangerous society.

    A SWEEPING ADVENTURE

    David Weaver weaves a fine tale indeed in this fascinating story of two young African boys as they transform into manhood. His excellence in description transports the reader directly into the plot itself. He brings his memorable characters to life with great skill and shows the commonality of human nature even in the remotest regions. Especially thrilling was the chapter involving the plane crash in the jungle--what an exciting ride! This book is an enjoyable read; a real page-turner. Don't miss it!!

    This is an action-packed coming of age tale, from KENYA

    It's hard growing up, in dry, mostly treeless northern Kenya, many miles from civilization. Young boys have to choose between the tribal life of their parents, full of dramatic ritual, and the seduction of modern life, far away in the big city. You'll like the journey of the boys in this story, toward manhood --- those born in Kenya and the wise-cracking one who arrives from America. They come together and share challenges, dangers, and the consequences of their actions. You'll feel like you are right there with them as they struggle to understand the world around them and reach maturity. It's a pleasureable read.
