A helicopter lands in the remote wilderness of Africa in order to refuel. Almost immediately, in this silent and primeval landscape, the white man and woman who step out are approached by a group of towering, graceful Masai warriors, who greet them with curiosity and good humor; when they take off again some minutes later, they part as friends. Just a few pages later, in this book by the Burroughs Medal–winning authors of Cry of the Kalahari, these same two conservationists and zoologists awaken in their tent to find a pair of black-maned lions sniffing them over. Mark and Delia Owens' memoir is full of such encounters, as they describe their experiences with elephants and other creatures in the Luangwa Valley in northeastern Zambia, which the Owenses played a major part in restoring as a protected wilderness area.
