Uncle Ron worked with DAVID in Tsavo National Park. He too was dedicated to the cause of raising wildebeest Willy &Impala Sally. The best was lion cub Prince who much to our disgust was shipped to Edinburgh Zoo at aged 2years. Regards to Daphne I am Ron Jolley niece
Having fallen in love with Africa 2 years on a trip to Tanzania, I was some what shy from reading another persons love story with the continent as thoughts of possible doubt would crept into my mind. But after reading this book I not only have fallen in love with Africa more, but now also Daphne herself. She is a beautiful writer and has a magnificent style, which I can only be jealous of. The book could be mistaken for an epic novel with a life full of authors dreams and thoughts, but instead it is one of the most stunning and interesting biographic stories I have had the pleasure of reading.
Being an African myself ( South African ) I have found that I long for Africa since leaving to live in the UK. The work that Daphne is doing is phenomenal , that she has shared her story with us is brave and honest. I would love to have lived the life Daphne has , we place so much emphasis on living in the "world" that we forget the real things in life - we forget to live. Daphne has never forgotten. Africa never lets you forget. Loved the accounts of Kenya , the people and the struggle for survival and sustainability , loved the accounts of the animals and shared the pain of the poaching and killing. Grateful to have read this.
