      So I was looking for another survival story to read with my eleven year old since we both enjoyed 'Island of the Blue Dolphins' and this was a winner! A plane crash, lions and poachers make for lots of exciting action, danger and suspense! The spiritual connection between the boy and the old lion is quite moving. We both rate this book 3.5 stars!Fiction is informative: The descriptions of the African landscape, animals and African vocabulary is interesting and educational. We learned a lot! Cave [...]

      I really liked this book because I like a lot of adventure/outdoors books so I highly recommend this to anyone who likes those types of books. I also liked how Eric Campbell was able through his writing really make you feel like you were in Africa. One thing that I didn't enjoy about the book was that it was little to short so some things seemed to go by really fast in the book but other then that this was a very good book.

      I was surprised by this book. I imagined it to be a young childrens book, with a young childrens narative and simple laguage but was instead confronted with a true and proper story. As good a tale as it wound up being, I felt that Campbell struggled to comtain it in the limited number of pages and it seemed that it was a bit squeezed in at the end.

      It was good. Has a deeper meaning behind it, poetic. But an easy read. It might be mind-blowing for a young reader and very fun for them.Recommend to somebody who loves animals, wants to have a connection with them.Warning: Blood (plane crash injuries). A little bit of violence. Poaching--3 elephants killed. A human eaten by a lion. "damn" used several times along with Lord's name.

      A decent adventure/survival quest, in a different locale than your usual northern woods setting.
