Here is a novel that explores the soul of the African wilds, along with one of the great issues of our time: the conflict between materialistic and spiritual worldviews. It plumbs the turbulent experiences of an African missionary's son who leaves the mission for the life of a game ranger. Unforeseen events involving reserve staff, visitors and the primeval African wilds overturn and revolutionise his thinking. Under the spell of an intense love affair he leaves the reserve as a new kind of missionary, fired by the possibilities of mankind to pioneer a new level of understanding and existence, a new creation, a new evolutionary stage in harmony with all life. The writing wraps the reader in the awesome space of wild Africa, and takes one on a compelling journey into the primal magic of an ancient land.
