Perilous Escapades in Equatorial Africa
HC 18 x 24 cm., 160 pp.
Zara's Tales is an intricately woven series of eleven irresistible stories told to Peter Beard's daughter, Zara, about his adventures in Kenya. His tales capture the essence of East Africa, bringing to life a cast of characters, including a 300-pound warthog named Thaka, who lived near his encampment. Man-eating lions and fifteen-foot crocodiles are part of every day life for Peter Beard, as he draws on the richness and diversity of East Africa to seduce the reader into a world of exploration, creativity, and excitement.
