It talks about the bush, the animals and the poeple they meet on their way and also about hte history of the places in Tsavo and the Galana river.
Having born in Kenya and visited these places on Safari, and stayed in the Lodges, I could fully feel the excitment and pleasure of the animals and the Kenyan countryside.
Read the book and enjoy.
It is such a shame that things are in decline with the animals at the moment - it is like reading about a bygone era.
The book is really about a study of elephants in Kenya. You will be disappointed unless you are into elephants.
I feel the book is actually wasted because it could be sitting on a library shelve as reference book for researchers.
