These stories - the love, passion, fun, laughter, shock, fear, disbelief and unique expressions are equally at risk of extinction as are certain species of game. Greer Noble, with much of her own life spent in the bush, recognised this and expertly sought and assembled fellow bushwhackers to share their memories. You will know some of them - the illustrious Will Travers OBE of the Born Free Foundation, renowned conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace, Dame Jane Goodall, esteemed award-winning author and fellow countryman, Wilbur Smith, celebrated author and professor, Bob Shacochis, Britain's foremost Wildlife Safari writer, Brian Jackman, distinguished, award-winning wild-life artists, Sue MassSaskia von Sperber, Larry Norton and Russell Barnett, professional game guides including the legendary Lloyd Wilmot of Botswana, Rob Fynn of Zimbabwe and Rory Young formally of Zambia (now covering the whole of Africa, training anti-poaching units - Africa's premier guardian of wildlife), primatologists, anthropologist, geophysicist, wildlife photographers, journalists, radio show hosts, salt-of-the-earth farmers, even a college boy, all submitted their stories, their experiences, illustrating their love of the wilds... condensed into a 394 page gem of a book, My Funny Africa... the result?  - a treasure of fast fading authentic tales of an Africa extraordinaire!

Eve How

I'm going to write Eve's bio. She's the one of the left by the way (with one of her beautiful daughters). If anyone should get an OBE that's Eve. Except she never will because, although from British descent, she's born (4th generation), and bred  in Africa. If ever there was a Mother Theresa of Africa, that's Eve.. but of course you will never hear about it. She is the kindest, most generous, selfless person I know. She's a globe trotter and a farm girl with an incredible heart and a great sense of humour - she's also my niece. I love her to bits and am so proud of her. Enjoy her stories!
