In The Wilderness Family, Krger recounts adventures and misadventures with the curious menagerie that shared her turf and sometimes her roof in the remote Mahlangeni section of Kruger National Park, which lies in the river laced country between South Africa and Mozambique Among the animals she encounters in the pages of her memoir are enterprising hyenas who, for whatever reason, pilfer cookware and blankets a python that crept into bed with the Krgers on their first night in Mahlangeni Egyptian goslings raised by a proud but broad minded bantam hen and the occasional ill tempered elephant Most affecting of all her encounters, however, is her long association with an orphaned lion cub named Leo, whom she and her family raised into adulthood Leo, whose pastimes included alarming unsuspecting visitors and staring at passing birds in the sky, takes center stage for much of this book, and Krger s loving portrait is a warm rejoinder to Joy Adamson s Born Free. Readers who come to this memorable study of life in the African outback will be duly entertained, and those who are planning a trip there will learn a thing or two about how to behave around genets, cobras, rhinos and, yes, lions Gregory McNameeA remote ranger station in the wilds of South Africa s Krger National Park provides the landscape for this memoir of the 17 years that the author, her game warden husband and their daughters lived in the bush amid the big cats and other exotic fauna of this idyllic region Whether she s recounting a near slapstick encounter with a creeping python in the bedroom on the family s first night in the backcountry, the nocturnal calls of a prowling local leopard, continual and scary confrontations with a grumpy hippo or a raging bull elephant s death charge, Krger s sturdy and unadorned prose is well suited to the book s natural setting The animal anecdotes tumble across the pages, at a pace that will engage readers who enjoy natural history and plainspoken yarns indeed, the book hit 1 in South Africa Meanwhile, the adversities of a stifling climate, jungle diseases and ornery vipers provide grim balance to the uplifting adventures recounted here The land, its creatures and its unchanging laws of survival serve as mentors to the author and her family, and lead the reader toward deeper insights about life beyond the furthest reaches of civilization For instance, the poignant episode of raising an orphan lion cub into adulthood becomes a lesson in responsibility, freedom and loss for the girls and their mother The wilderness depicted in this book, is by turns, a demanding teacher and a provider of wondrous gifts Illus and photos not seen by PW Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
