Grounded in the grandeur of the sub-Saharan wilderness, The Story of Bones traces a remarkable boy’s journey from a hardscrabble cassava farm to the rarified world of a private African safari camp.
Bones comes of age facing heartache, deprivation, and formidable human adversaries—the most dangerous creatures in Africa. His path to love and fulfillment awakens a passion for imperiled animals while forging loyalties that force him to make a wrenching decision.
The narrative pulses with tension and unforeseen twists. Provocative and moving, The Story of Bones builds to a powerful appeal for the preservation of Africa’s most endangered species. An author at the peak of her storytelling powers, Donna Cousins transports readers to the sights, sounds, smells, and realities—both harsh and beautiful—of the African bush.
