I have long been a fan of Dr. Allgood's photography, he captures the beauty, the essence and a subtext of his subjects, while allowing personal interpretation. This book fulfilled my expectations and then some. The easy reading allowed me to be a travel companion with this wonderful couple. I loved the stories that introduced me to some very interesting people and animals, plus added a greater debth of understanding of the africa that he and Sharon enjoyed so much! A journey I will not forget. I recommend this book to anyone contemplating a trip to Africa, it will provide you with descriptions of places you will probably want to visit yourself after reading about them. Or, if armchair traveling is what you enjoy most, you will be thrilled with the quality of the photography and text that allows you to put yourself in the authors jeep.
