Publisher's Summary

Angus and Hugh MacNaughton are brothers. They dislike each other...a lot.

They have loathed each other since Hugh bit Angus at a family picnic many years ago. In a last-ditch attempt to forge a brotherly bond between the two, Mr. and Mrs. MacNaughton secure them jobs at an exclusive five-star game lodge. They manage to convince (bribe in the case of Angus) the siblings to work at Sasekile Private Game Lodge for a year.

A Year in the Wild tells the uproarious, cringeworthy, and hilarious tales of Angus and Hugh in the form of weekly emails to their sister Julia. Their experiences include encounters with guests, animals, female staff, and often a mixture of these.

Combine an eclectic mix of rich, overdemanding and adulterous guests and a dash of crazy bush lodge staff including two jealous brothers (one a bitterly sarcastic game ranger and the other an overeager lodge manager), and throw in the beauty of the African bushveld. Shake well. Conflict and disaster are inevitable.

    "A must read!"

    I cannot recommend this audiobook highly enough. It had me laughing so hard I had to rewind and even brought some tears to my eyes. The narration is excellent and the story is masterfully crafted. Each of the characters are human, lovable/hatable and feel entirely real. I was hooked from the first chapter all the way to the last. A wonderful tale!

    "Excellent adventure!"

    Having been a Wildearth/Safari Live viewer for 10 years now, I've developed a keen appreciatuon for James Hendry - his knowledge, experience, and humor. This book does not disappoint. It brings Africa and lodge life home for those of us who can only dream of visiting the African bush, and is told with an honesty and clarity that can only come from one with first-hand knowledge of the subject. As an added bonus, Mr. Hendry himself reads the Audible version. I highly recommend this book.

    Outstanding book getting to know James Hendry watching Safari Live made the book even better, and listening to it narrated by James brought the book to life
