Thought this would be an interesting read, how wrong I was. The subject was fine, but written in a way that was a cure for insomnia. Totally boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amazing story, settling a wild herd of elephants in a reserve only achieved by the sheer determination of the author and his staff against all the odds. An achievement that probably is only recognised by the world through this book. Conservation of wild life is brought home to us all by this record of events, told in in a way that you wont want to put the book down. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although not exciting till towards the end , this is a detailed account of an amazing rescue situation in a hostile country. A bit slow and documentry style writing to start, but gradually hots up to the climax of the rescue, putting the reader on "The edge of your Seat". Now a film, recommend you read the book, you will enjoy a bit of recent history not widely known until now.

Well written amazing story of the bond between man and dog, an unbreakable love and understanding for each other. The courage of both together with the men they were protecting shone through, respect is not a big enough word for them all. Its going to be a sad day when The dog (Treo) passes on , I only hope Dave Heyhoe can show the same amount of courage at that time as he did in Afghanistan. Highly recommended. You will end up wanting to shake the mans hand and stroke Treo.

This review is from: Rosa Parks: My Story (Paperback)
An insight in to a well known slice of history, told from a brave unassuming women who knew right from wrong and stood up for right. A David and Goliath story. All credit to her and others. Not that long ago in the scheme of things. Without people like Rosa Parks, nothing would change. Recommended

This review is from: Shrapnel (Hardcover)
Not a life changing book, amusing at times. A story that could apply to numerous soldiers, but written by one. Did enjoy it, but its not a book I couldnt put down. overpriced.
