    This is one of my favorite books and follows on wonderfully from Lost world of the Kalahari The sense of the bushmen s life being in total harmony with their natural surroundings is incredibly moving and gives a glimpse of our lost but not forgotten garden of Eden.

    Feels like two books stuck together one on his time in the desert, and the second on Bushman mythology Both were interesting though Some outdated and obviously biased language, but also an evident love for Southern Africa and respect for the people he encountered.

    Contains some of Van der Posts beautifully incisive prose but ultimately loses pace as a story, since it includes part travelogue, part retelling of Bushmen lore on the origin of spirit and part historic reality of raising awareness of their plight Will definitely be seeking outLVdeP
