This is not a guide book. It is a delightful novel. Crack open the covers of this little book and be transported to a time and place that probably no longer exists. A one week bet between 2 club members prompts this fun romp written with tongue in cheek humor. Each daily bird hunting trek takes us into another aspect of life in Kenya. This book is equally appealing to birders and non-birders alike.
“A lighthearted novel about birding and a wager to win the right to call a woman for a date.” Kirkus Reviews
“While the reader is pulled along by the suspense of the contest, the glorious sights, sounds, and smells of Nairobi provide lovely rest stops along the way.” Library Journal Starred
” A Guide to the Birds of East Africa…reads like transplanted Wodehouse.” Christian Science Monitor
A beguiling novel that does for contemporary Kenya and its 1,000 species of birds what Alexander McCall Smith’s Ladies Detective series does for Botswana – Amazon
