Whenever I come back from SA I have some new books and it´s always a tough decision what to take and what not. After reading your posts I have just decided to get this book in November :)

Picked it up last year during our SA visit and could'nt put it down. Re-read it in May this year and gleaned a few more insights again. Excellently written and very worth reading.

Picked up a good copy in a second hand book shop. Read 1/3 this afternoon so the dust mites thought that was a good decision!! :lol: :lol:

Very enjoyable and realistic.

OOPS THIS WAS MY 1000 POST AND WHAT A MEMORABLE ONE WITH THE RANGERS!
