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.
