“This is an exciting adventure story for older children. Packed with events and humour that make it a compelling read, it is based on the need to preserve the wonderful but sadly vanishing wild life of Africa. Mark Blaine, expelled from two of England’s top schools for rebellion and violent behaviour, is sent to complete his education at one of the world’s most unusual schools. Timbavati High School, established in a remote area of the South African bushveld, selects boys and girls from all over the world for its programme to save threatened species of wild animals from extinction. Mark, in spite of his problems, has talents that suit Timbavati’s special needs. He arrives in sullen mood at what he feels is banishment from his home life in England – but finds a fascinating new world. He encounters awesome adventures including battles with ivory poachers, a narrow escape from a lioness and meetings with a witchdoctor. He also finds himself in dramatic involvements in tribal rites and intrigues when his friend, Prince Lucas Mazawatu, is crowned king of his nation.”
