CATHEDRAL OF THE WILD An African Journey Home

by | Read by Boyd Varty

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Varty is the scion of the extraordinary family that established the Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa and pioneered ecotourism across Africa. Here he offers a personal account of growing up in extraordinary circumstances, overcoming daunting obstacles, and finding his place in the world. Varty mixes stories from his African game park—lions in the bush, elephants in the back garden, and baboons in luxury bedrooms—with observations from his search for mystical enlightenment in settings that range from Indian ashrams to sweat lodges in Arizona. The author’s narration lacks the polish others might bring to it. However, it is redeemed entirely by his intense conviction and his charming South African accent. Don’t miss hearing about Nelson Mandela’s visits to Londolozi. F.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
