I first saw this book in the public library in my town and it had elephants on the front so i got it (because i love elephants) and when i read it nobody could take it from me then i remembered i had to give it back to the library (unfortunatley) so i went down to Barnes & Noble to buy it. Lucky me it was the last copy on the shelve so i was soooooo happy ^_^ and i turned out to be my favorite book EVER so i will keep reading it till the day i die!!!! P.S.- (To roland smith) You better write a second book to go along with this!!!!!

I started to read this book for a project in my Geography class where we had to apply the five themes of Geography to a foreign country. I was stunned with what I read. The author (Roland Smith) has a unique style, which allows the reader to see from all perspectives. Not only did I learn about the five themes of Geography, I learned about what really is going on in Kenya in the perspective of Jake Lansa (A boy searching for his father, a field biologist) and of the people native to Kenya. I felt as if I too were there, traveling with Jake through the Kenyan terrain and seeing all of the hidden evils and the splendor of the land. I felt enraged during the chapters which poachers/poaching was involved, and peaceful in the parts where the undamaged parts of Kenya were written about. I was furious when I read that poor and rich families alike felt that they needed to steal from innocent animals, even though there were other ways to make enough money. It was extremely interesting to read about the different cultures of the land and their different ways of hunting and living. Thunder Cave has most definitely opened my eyes.

This book is so cool!! I think one of the reasons why this book is so good is because the plot is told in a believable way. This is my favorite book. Trust me... you will never be able to put it down!!!!
