"Tembo Makaburi is a novella about a big game hunter and his indentured servant in the Africa of the 1960's, long before governments placed any restrictions on the killing of endangered species. It is difficult to review this novella without giving away the plot, so I will just say that this story pits Walter Cravens, a white man from England caring only about the fame and fortune he hopes to acquire by killing African animals, and the wise elephant that Walter incorrectly believes that he is hunting. What follows is an intriguing look at the downfall of this selfish man whose greed ultimately leads to his worst nightmare. Although short, this story contains plenty of action and mystique as well as a unique perspective on how much smarter animals are than humans give them credit for being." - Amazon reviewer
