Postwar Dinosaur Bluesby Darrell Bain
[Postwar Dinosaur Blues] "If you like variety in your adventures in life, then get yourself a pith helmet, mosquito and shark repellent and be sure to pack a life jacket when you take the trip with the Willard brothers to the Congo on a dinosaur hunt. Also, bring your sense of humor as this tale will have you smiling a lot at the situations the brothers create for themselves."
~ Anne K. Edwards, author of The Last to Fall.
After the Vietnam war, the hard drinking adventurous Williard brothers decide to go hunting for a purported dinosaur living deep in the Congo. Flying a beatup old seaplane, pursued by the Mafia, carrying a half million in drug money they don't know they have; they are shot at, shot down, almost eaten by the Mokele Mbembe and finally are captured by a trube of Pygmies.

If you like variety in your adventures in life, then get yourself a pith helmit, mosquito and shark repellent and be sure to pack a life jacket when you take the trip with the Willard brothers to the Congo on a dinosaur hunt. Also, bring your sense of humor as this tale will have you smiling a lot at the situations the brothers create for themselves. From the land of Mafia-financed bankers to the land of the Pygmy people where the dinosaur is reputed to live, the Willard brothers will conduct you on a fast-stepping tour of the world. The three of them have just exited various branches of military service and turned up at their sister's home and from there plans are made to go on a dinosaur hunt rather than submit to the nine-to-five routine of ordinary life. Is this just a needed step they must take before giving up the excitement of risking their lives to settle down? Do they really believe in the existence of the dinosaur? How will they finance this trip? Join in the fun as the Willards and their new girlfriends seek out the answers. A fun read from beginning to end, a rollicking time to be had by characters and readers as the story unwinds. From a near riot at a country club to a hike in deep mud pulling a raft, the action is continuous. Lots of surprises along the way. A tale written by a master story teller, one you will definitely enjoy. I sure did and recommend it as well worth the time.
