Publisher's Summary

He began life at his twin brother’s side, soon running wild on his father’s ranch on the edge of Africa. But violence, desire, and fate sent Sean Courtney into exile - where he would fight and love his way to extraordinary success and heartbreaking failure....
In a place called The Ridge of White Waters, Sean made a life-long friendship, mined a fortune of gold, and met his own demons. Then an act of cunning betrayal struck - and ignited a new adventure to a new frontier.
From facing the murderous charge of a towering bull elephant to watching men die unspeakable deaths, Sean fought new enemies, forged new allies - and dreamed of establishing a family on a farm of his own. But in Wilbur Smith's When the Lion Feeds, the young man who had lived by his courage, sweat, and blood discovers that the past still has its claws in him….

Great Writer. Great Story.

This was quite an historical learning experience besides being an intriguing storyline. Loved the characters and learning what life was like in Africa in the late 1800's.

What a ride

From the highest highs to lowest lows, Sean lives a life to the fullest. I've yet to find a Wilbur Smith book that I can put down.
