The Way of the Topi


Way of the Topi is novel in which youngsters take definitive action to stop animal extinction by man. Whether in Africa or Japan they agree that the best approach is to establish an on-going action group to combat environmental disasters. The group is called The Okapi Club, named after an endangered animal species. Children and adults are members. Thomas Andersons setting descriptions are lyrical and beautiful in both Paradise Mountain, set in Japan, and Way of The Topi, set in Africa. Characterization is vivid and crisp, and the actions and emotions of the brother and sister team, Tim and Lisa, are well-suited to concerned adolescents. In both books, the reader learns about geography, heritage, customs and the everyday lifestyles of their hosts. In Way of The Topi, Tim and Lisa visit Kabedi and Tumba. The subject is the absence of Africa's large, spectacular wild animals. The savannah has secrets, dangers, legends and poachers. We live with Kabedi, Tumba and their parents, Ngoya, and Miteo, in their home in a small village. We work the fields, go to an outdoor village market, stumble upon a hunter's camp, and are swept up in an adventure to capture an antelope poacher in his den. A ghost story and the Legend of the Six Eyed Monster heighten our sense of danger and adventure! Hide synopsis
