Hi WAC and welcome back,

I am also a great fan of her books (in Germany they put both together in one) and always when I am getting a bit bushsick (in the dark and cold German winter) I grab my book and read it again :dance:

Presently I am reading it for the forth time 8)

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.

Her youngest daughter has a website - http://www.karinkruger.com/

i have just finished reading the wilderness family and i thought it was amazing, i was in floods of tears reading it towards the end when she was saying good bye to leo. :cry:
i was desperate to find out if she wrote follow up books so i searched on the internet, at first i could only find her daughters web page and then i found an old interveiw(2001) with kobie kruger which revealed leo had died in 2000 from a attack from two other lions at his new reserve in zimbabwe, im devestated!! plus kobie kruger has been living on the eastern cape for a long time now, why did the family leave kruger? is she never to write about her adventures in kruger again? does anyone have any answers? im heartbroken :cry: :cry:

Hi Sallyanna,

I think the family left Kruger after suffering some personal tragedies.
