I thought this was a marvelous adventure. This is what Amazon said about the book and I agree:
At the close of Wilbur Smith's bestselling "Monsoon", Tom Courtney and his brother Dorian battled on the high seas and finally reached the Cape of Good Hope to start life afresh. In this spellbinding new novel, the next generation of Courtneys are out to stake their claim in Southern Africa, traveling along the infamous 'Robber's Road'. It is a journey both exciting and hazardous, that takes them through the untouched wilderness of a beautiful land filled with warring tribes and wild animals. At heart a story of love and hatred, vengeance and greed, "Blue Horizon" is an utterly compelling adventure from one of the world's most celebrated novelists.
