Summary:

Hunting stories, like traveller's tales, are proverbially dangerous to reputations, however literally true they may be ...' So wrote J Percy FitzPatrick of his perennial best-seller, never out of print in the century since its first publication. Here is the story of the 'Boy' who went to seek his fortune and of his bull-terrier, the plucky runt of the litter; of Marokela, the champion Zulu haulier; of Jantje, the Bushman with all his lore; and of pioneer types from previous goldrushes in California and Australia. A tribute to the life of the 1880s in the outposts of the agrarian Transvaal, this complete edition includes for the first time the author's 'Postscript' and 'The Creed of Jock'.

Summary:

Mario Cesare wrote about his life as a game ranger in his memoir "Man-eaters, Mambas and Marula Madness". Through these stories his readers have come to know and love, Shilo, a dog in a million and the love of Marios life. Though Mario is a game ranger and conservationist, this is not just another 40 years as a game ranger type of book. It is the story of an adventurous life -- spanning both pre- and post-1994 Southern Africa which is interwoven with the tale of an intense, loving 14-year relationship between himself and his dog Shilo. This relationship between man and dog was clearly meant to be from the day Mario first took the tiny new-born pup into his hands. It has lasted through innumerable adventures of duck-hunt and killer crocodile, wounded buffalo, lion, leopard and poacher. The Man with the Black Dog is permeated by the same love and empathy that made Jock of the Bushveld such a classic and it is also, of course, a very South African story. Never before has the story of a man and his dog revealed so much of the flavour of life in such an exquisite wild location and, though over a century has passed since the transport wagons carved their trails to and from Delagoa Bay, the scent evoked of dust and rain remains the same and the grey ghosts of kudu and elephant still melt into the bush. Mario Cesares career has taken him, and Shilo, from Timbavati and Mala Mala to Olifants River and beyond -- and he delights in sharing his good fortune. His latest task is developing and nurturing the Olifants River Game Reserve as the fences of the Greater Kruger National Park area fall, undoing generations of damage.

Summary:

Jock's mother Jess was the only dog in their camp. FitzPatrick describes her as "an unattractive bull-terrier with a dull brindled coat-black and grey in shadowy stripes. She had small cross-looking eyes and uncertain always-moving ears; she was bad tempered and most unsociable", but everybody respected her.[3] Jock's father is only described as an imported dog in the book and there's an ongoing debate on whether he was an American Staffordshire Terrier or of a breed like the bull and terrier.

Summary:

Lina accompanies her grandfather into the forest to search for healing plants when they meet up with a game warden who tells them about poachers’ snares that he has discovered. Lina is told to wait and sit on a rock while her grandfather, Pa’Tuusi, and the warden look for the snares. She is frightened of being alone; she can’t ‘talk’ to the animals the way her grandfather does, but then a dragonfly attracts her attention and she follows it to find a little duiker caught in a snare. She loses her way, but elephants help her and the duiker find their way back to her grandfather. The story is intriguing, with a slight amount of tension to keep it interesting. Says author Lisa Steyn: ‘South Africa has so many cultures that have deep historic connections to the land and nature, and that is what inspired me to tell a contemporary story of a little girl of Khoekhoe descent, who’s grandfather still knows some of the ancient ways ... the nearly inexplicable connection that the First People of this land had with their environment, and some still have, seems to me like pure natural magic.’

Summary:

Following in the footsteps of Jock of the Bushveld, Running Wild is an African story for all ages. It is a tale of resilience, of courage and endurance, a book that will uplift, enrich and warm every lover of the African bush. The story of Zulu is based on the life of a real stallion that lived on the Mashatu Game Reserve. The versions of the story of Zulu are about as numerous as the people who recount them. The horse and the myth were at times indistinguishable. This account of his life has been stitched together from all those stories. In February 2000, tropical Cyclone Leon-Eline resulted in a storm so severe that the horses of Mashatu broke out of their enclosure and roamed wild and free for days before returning. Zulu was the only one that did not return. He was thought to be lost to the scourges of the Bushveld. Years pass before Zulu is discovered to be not only alive and well, but running as the lead stallion of a herd of wild zebras. He is recaptured and returned to the safari stables as a much bolder and wiser stallion - knowledge he passes on to the other horses as well as the humans of Limpopo Valley.

There are few places on earth where one can witness, in such great variety and at such close quarters, the miracle of life and the finality of death. The park is densely populated by some 520 bird, 116 reptile and 148 mammal species, including the fabled big five of elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo. Virtually every game drive is almost guaranteed to produce thrilling sights to remember, from some of Africa's largest prides of lion, to birds found nowhere else within the country's borders. The Kruger National Park is a true gem of Africa and stands as a symbol to all that conservation and tourism can achieve towards a harmonious level of interdependence.
