I red this book when I was 9 years old. Now I'm 18 and I still love to read it.I read it so many times and every time I read it, I find someting new. Highly recomended.

As a child I read this book not less than 8 times and each beginning was exciting and new. It left so vivid and strong impressions in my young mind that I still have the pleasant sense of excitement only when I think of the beautiful story. It is a must for every young teenager with love for adventure and desire for exploring the wide world (in this case Africa). I definitely place 'In Desert and Wilderness' among the World Literary Treasures which every person should read at least once.
