The White Hunter is book 22 of Gilbert Morris' Historical Fiction series, "House of Winslow", which follows one family's line down through America's history, starting with the first pilgrims. Each book can stand alone or be read as part of the series. Though the books are filled with rich, accurate historical detail, they are great recreational reading and have fun plots with a touch of wholesome romance. Check my list for more in this series.
It was a good adventure story with a great message. The character John Winslow was really well developed. I think it was one of the best House of Winslow books yet. It takes you into Africa and goes into great detail of missionary life then.
