Read Mahlangeni yesterday ... The life of a Game Ranger and his family is hard but oh so rewarding!

I seriously got KNP withdrawal while reading the book...

I was looking on Amazon and noticed there was another book as well.. A Wilderness Family I think it was called.

I am seriously bummed because Kuki Gallmanns site is down :(

ETA: it does say A Wilderness Family on the lost of recommended books, just not in this topic :)

I think A Wilderness Family might be these two books in one:
All things wild and wonderful & Mahlangeni. I'm not 100% sure though.

Have only read My Wilderness Family - absolutely LOVED it! Is there any point in reading the other two also??? Don't want to be disappointed as the one I read was excellent - could hardly put it down..... Am off to Kruger beginning of Jan and was looking for a nice Kruger read!

These two books are fantastic. Whenever I get bush cravings I read one or both of them They are just great. Has she written any other books? The Bruce Bryden book is also great. Another good 'bush book is all the way Home by Bookey Peek. Based on a wild life sanctuary in Zim. Its excellent reading

They were yes. I have searched the online book stores too - and only ever seen those two, or the revised version which is just the two in one.
