Overview

Peter Fitt uses a Soviet airplane in a development project, to place fish in Kariba Lake, to provide a livelihood to people displaced by the new dam, and the Russians use this opportunity to supply arms to both sides in the Rhodesia/Zimbabwe independence struggle. They intend to escalate the civil war so their cadres can climb into power. Shit rises to the top when stirred.
Pete instinctively dislikes the power-hungry men who see others as ego-food or enemies. In his family, with a memory of San beliefs, these are looked on as human predators, men possessed by lion spirits.
The eland opposes the selfish and destructive carnivores, the lions, and helps those who embrace the principle that the strong should defend others, not prey on them.
Healing power is found in dance, in trance, but courage, and love, are for each to find.

Meet the Author

Phil van Wulven was born in Africa, in a family who changed houses and schools, as well as countries, quite often. Landlords, Headmasters, and governments prefer you to leave places as you found them, he discovered. He has lived in Canada for quite a while now, where he is busy growing roots. He hates rejection almost as much as dejection. He likes trees, birds, sunsets, and all that, and is getting used to the idea that seeing a sunrise doesn’t mean he is on the way to work. He likes to read, write, drink beer, and fix stuff.

Review by: Robert DeBurgh on Dec. 10, 2011 Philip Van Wulven paints a masterful picture of life in South Africa during the Rhodesia/Zimbabwe war for independence. His knowledge of the people, attitudes and mindsets of this era is remarkable, as is his knowledge of ancient African myth and legend. Altogether, Van Wulven weaves a fascinating tale of war, revolution, love and the mystical that once begun is difficult to put down. I look forward to reading more of his tales of Africa
