Grounded in the grandeur of the sub-Saharan wilderness, The Story of Bones traces a remarkable boy's journey from a hardscrabble cassava farm to the rarified world of a private African safari camp.

Bones comes of age facing heartache, deprivation, and formidable human adversaries--the most dangerous creatures in Africa. His path to love and fulfillment awakens a passion for imperiled animals while forging loyalties that force him to make a wrenching decision.

The narrative pulses with tension and unforeseen twists. Provocative and moving, The Story of Bones builds to a powerful appeal for the preservation of Africa's most endangered species. An author at the peak of her storytelling powers, Donna Cousins transports readers to the sights, sounds, smells, and realities--both harsh and beautiful--of the African bush.
