About this book

The adventure of a moonlit picnic on a vanishing island; her son's entrancement with chameleons and the mystical visit of a king cobra to his grave; the mysterious compassion of an elephant herd. In each event, Kuki Gallmann conveys her delight and wonder at the whole fabric of creation. She recounts touching moments with people passing through, and enduring friendships constantly renewed; strange and wonderful encounters with animals; the magnificence of the coast and mountains, forest and savannah and reveals, in addition to the harmony between man and his environment, the intrinsic beauty of Africa's soul.
