Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Patricia Rempen
This is a great read by someone who obviously knows what he's talking about. Living in Namibia, working in Namibia - in not always the easiest circumstances, he has a great attitude about all the things that can and do go wrong. The characters are larger than life, and the details about the country - and the desert - excellent.
I totally enjoyed the book, and have already downloaded more from the same author. It made my weekend!
Amazon.com - M. Kauffman
The author, once again, acknowledges the world's difficulties while remaining a steadfast solution to a myriad of cultural, political, social, and personal issues. Great read!

    My parents always taught me to find all of the positive aspects

    My parents always taught me to find all of the positive aspects of every country we ever lived in. They taught me to find the beauty in everything. In his entertaining, well written book, Mullen appreciates the beauty of Namibia and lets the reader experience it too. He handles some difficult politics and intolerant people with grace. His positive approach to life and his power to visualize ensure success. Mullen's photographs in all his books are exceptional. I especially love the pictures of the Sossuvlei dunes in this book. Enjoy an escape to another part of the world.

    This is a great story - AND it's a good time-episode  of Namibia

    This is a great story - AND it's a good time-episode  of Namibia, at the same time. The characters are larger than life, and the details make me feel like I'm there.
    Highly recommended. Now I'm off to find more of his books...
