A true pioneer missionary, Brenda survived many snake and wild animal attacks in the first thirteen years of her ministry to orphans in Mozambique, Africa. The Lord ordered her to rescue orphans in areas 'where no one else wants to go.' Brenda's calling to help orphans took her deep into the African bush of northern Mozambique, where she has faced death multiple times. From strikes by the deadly mamba to lions and leopards and machete-flinging natives, Brenda has faced it all in order to rescue and evangelize orphans. Read of the many miracles God performed, including the raising of the dead when her interpreter was bitten by a black mamba (the incident was published in Guidepost Magazine, Feb. 2001).

Aagaard s African Adventures

Finn Aagaard was a special man. He was a highly respected Kenya professional hunter (1967-1977) and, later, a gun expert and writer. After the hunting ban in Kenya, he and his wife of thirty-two years, Berit, moved to the USA where Finn became a hunting guide in Texas. Soon thereafter he became a writer for the NRA, and his opinions on guns, calibers, and African hunting gained him worldwide recognition. The first part of Aagaard's African Adventures contains the complete, original manuscript of Aagaard's Africa, which was published in an abridged form in 1991. Berit, who knew him better than anyone, has expanded on Finn's hunting stories while offering new, and never-before-published material found in Finn's meticulously kept journals dating back to 1956. Together with these and the adventures and tales recorded on CDs shortly before his death, she paints a unique picture of the man. We follow Finn through the bloody Mau Mau uprising; we learn what it took to become a PH; we share in his courtship and engagement on an elephant hunt; and we watch as he tracks after large-tusked elephant and big buffalo. Berit and Finn describe the animals Finn pursued in such a way that it makes the reader feel as if he could reach out through the pages and touch them. Berit interviewed clients who still, after thirty years, recall how their hearts raced when a charging buffalo or leopard came at them. This new and hugely expanded version is double in size and has more than five times the photos. No other African hunting book of the last few decades does such a masterful job of transferring the flavor of Africa, its game, big-game hunting, and people to the reader. Finn and Berit's humorous outlook on life is evident in the writing. A tracker once told the Aagaards he intended to vote for the same corrupt cabinet minister of Kenya as always. Asked why he would vote for a known crook, he answered "Because if a new cabinet minister wins, he will have to start stealing from us all over again " Foreword by John Wootters and tributes by Jeff Cooper, Craig Boddington, the late Gary Sitton, and Phil Shoemaker.

This book presents a panorama of life on a Safari. My husband, our son, and I would be making a major move from Japan to Nairobi, capital of Kenya, Africa. We would not be tourists visiting for a short, one-time experience.. Instead, we would be setting up a new household and our new film business. This would be a totally new environment for us, and we felt an exciting new adventure lay ahead. At the time of our move, Kenya was in the middle of the Mau Mau Revolution. Moving to Kenya was an enlightening change in the pattern of our living. The wealth of experiences it presented, and the learning curve for all of us, especially our son, was monumental. Where else but in Africa can one live in the envelope of nature surrounded with such an enormous variety of plants and animals? Our family grew and savored those six years with golden memories. It proved to be one of the highlights of all our lives.

Colonial adventures in a 6 volume collection set on the 'Dark Continent' In the first years of the twentieth century much of the African continent remained dark, mysterious and still full of strange and exotic possibilities. The British Empire ruled over vast areas of trackless plain and dense equatorial jungle, all had their fragile order maintained by a small cadre of government officials, policemen, soldiers and forces raised from the local populations. To those who only read about these remarkable men it seemed they led a life full of the potential for adventure of the most exciting kind. So it was unsurprising that popular authors of the day-including H. Rider Haggard and the author of these stories, Edgar Wallace, among them, readily chose colonial Africa-with its fierce tribes, witch doctors and magic, its dangerous animals and wild landscapes-as a rich and rewarding stage for their forays into fiction to meet the insatiable demand of the domestic audience. Wallace was a prolific author responsible for several series of popular novels featuring bold adventurers and crime fighters. For his series set in the highly evocative world of West Africa he created two of his most beloved and enduring characters, Colonial Administrator Sanders and his eccentric companion Lieutenant Tibbetts, known to all as 'Bones'. Sanders was probably based upon the real life character of Frederick Lugard who was the highly regarded creator and administrator of Northern Nigeria and whose incredible career can scarcely be said to have been less remarkable than that of his fictional counterpart. Those who love classic adventure especially set against an African backdrop will discover a rich vein of reading pleasure in the six Leonaur books (which include both short stories and novels) that comprise this special edition of the collected adventures of Sanders and Bones. Volume one includes two books first published as individual volumes-Sanders of the River and The People of the River. This series is available in softcover and hardcover with dustjacket for collectors. Leonaur hardcovers are bound in high quality cloth and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and taped head and tail bands.

When the British government undertook the construction of the Uganda Railway through East Africa in 1898, harsh criticism from the press, tremendous amounts of money spent, and rebelliousness of the workers turned out to be the least of the government’s worries. Their biggest obstacle came in the form of two ravenous lions with a taste for human flesh, terrorizing the 35,000 laborers building a railway bridge over the Tsavo River. After killing more than one hundred-thirty people over the course of nine months, the lions completely halted construction, as the workers were too afraid to continue. Colonel John Henry Patterson, the chief engineer overseeing the project, then took matters into his own hands. An inexperienced hunter at the time, but a courageous and clever man, he took on the beasts and single-handedly brought an end to their nine-month reign of terror. Patterson’s true account of his gripping and terrifying adventures confronting the lions and overseeing the project termed “The Lunatic Line,” while tackling countless other obstacles, is a must for anyone looking for a thrilling read. With over 100 original photos of the East African lands, native tribes, and wild animals, The Man-Eaters of Tsavo is a true hunting classic.
