From the pen of conservationist, Brian Connell, comes the story of two men from different worlds united by the spirit of Africa.
In what can best be described as a non-fiction novel, Connell documents the construction of his dream, Nokuthula, Place of Peace. Through many delightful anecdotes, he demonstrates the majestic yet fragile reality which is Africa.
Documenting his observations and often humorous interactions with his Zulu cohorts, Connell transports the reader to the timelessness of the tawny land he is so passionate about. Set in a time and a place of racial tension, the characters are united by a common goal and respect for each other.
Having embarked on the road less travelled, Connell eloquently and enthusiastically describes his adventures in breath taking detail. His tales of the animal kingdom are wonderfully entertaining and informative.
A must read for Africans and non-Africans alike, Msomi and Me will delight, amuse and inform from the beginning of the dream to the poignant ending.
