Introducing... Life Along The Luangwa

LATL Cover

Life Along the Luangwa describes the dramatic interplay between several species of animals that intermingle by the Luangwa river in Zambia, Africa. The drama that unfolds involves a herd of hippos, a family of Oxpeckers ("back birds"), and a pride of lions - as well as a pair of proud Wattling Cranes.

The adventure begins with the birth in the river of a newborn hippo. Come follow the effects of little Henry's arrival as it ripples out across the others carving out a life for themselves along the meandering river.

This story of friendship, heroism, and survival began as a tale I spun for my grandchildren. With vivid illustrations by Toby Mikle, it has now been recorded for all to enjoy.
