Excellent book and story. Better yet that it was based on a true story . It's amazing how a boy at such a young age could have the courage and determination to exceed like he did .
Very much recommend this book to read . And the follow up book
" Growing Up In Africa " about his now being a married father with children and continuing his life adventures in Africa.
