As ivory poachers are gunning down Africa’s last elephants, former SAS officer Ian MacAdam leads a commando squad against them. He pursues the poachers through jungled mountains and searing deserts, only to find they have kidnapped a young archaeologist, Rebecca Hecht, whom he once loved and bitterly lost.
He embarks on a desperate trek to save not only Rebecca but his own soul in an Africa torn apart by wars, overpopulation and the slaughter of its last wildlife.
Based on the author’s own experiences pursuing elephant poachers in the wilds of East Africa, The Last Savanna is an intense personal memoir of humanity’s ancient heartland, the beauty of its perilous deserts, jungles, and savannas, and the deep, abiding power of love.
A Note From the Publisher
“The central figure is not human; it is the barren, terrifying landscape of Northern Kenya and the deadly creatures who inhabit it.” – DAILY TELEGRAPH“Pulsating with the sights, sounds, and dangers of wild Africa, its varied languages and peoples, the harsh warfare of the northern deserts and the hunger of denied love.” –NEWTON CHRONICLE “The imagery was so powerful and built emotions so intense that I had to stop reading a few times to regain my composure.”–AFRICAN PUBLISHERS’ NETWORK “An unforgettable odyssey into the wilderness, mysteries, and perils of Africa.”
– GREATER LONDON RADIO “Bond touches on the vast and eerie depths that lie under the thin crust of civilization and the base instinct within man to survive – a thoroughly enjoyable read that comes highly recommended.”–NOTTINGHAM OBSERVER
