Summary

Following on from the events begun in A Falcon Flies, Men of Men continues Wilbur Smith's epic story of the Ballantynes.  

It is the age of empire, of blood and conquest, of boundless excitement and possibility. Striding in the footsteps of the pioneers is Zouga Ballantyne. His dream begins in the danger and drudgery of the diamond pits and ends up on the rich grasslands of Matabeleland - but not before a king and a proud warrior nation have paid the price of history.... 

Men of Men is followed by The Angels Weep and The Leopard Hunts in the Darkness.

Epic Continuation

After waiting so long to have English translated audiobooks from Wilbur Smith having listened to this almost straight thru I can't wait to start the next. Wilbur Smith has always been a favorite of mine and armed with the knowledge of unabridged versions now being released I can't wait for the next issuing pre-ordered copies as soon as they are available. Worthy of many listeners for historical reference and spellbinding tales alike there's something for everyone in this series!
