Texas Author Releases New Literary Fiction Novel Set in Africa – 'The Sands Of Katambora'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 17, 2014

"The Sands of Katambora" is a sentimental story about overcoming obstacles and pursuing a greater good. It will touch your heart, excite your senses, and open your eyes not only to the beauty of the African landscape, but also to the ways wildlife and wild spaces are affected by human behavior. It has a powerful, prescient message of the devastation caused by modern ivory, rhino horn poaching and loss of habitat occurring in today's Africa. The story is set in Central Africa, along the Zambezi River, and is about the BaTonga people, who worship the River God, Nyaminyami. A dragon-like creature with a snake torso and a fish-shaped head, the BaTonga believe he controls their lives, and he is rumored to cast a spell on anyone who sets foot in the Zambezi valley. And so it was that Colin Somerset fell under her spell, and was bound to Nyaminyami for his entire life and throughout all of his endeavors. After first coming to the valley at age five, he dedicated himself to improving the quality of life for his beloved BaTonga people, and to protecting the land and wildlife held under her dominion. Set on transforming his family's business from hunting safaris to photographic safaris, Colin encounters tremendous struggles, opposition, and resistance from those around him, and experiences turmoil in his own personal relationships. A must-read for anyone interested in Africa, its people and landscape, "The Sands of Katambora" tells a compelling love story with a timely message about conserving the world's wildlife and wild spaces. "The Sands of Katambora" is available in print and ebook format.
