This book was inspired by the tenacious efforts of the handful of professional field archaeologists over the last few decades in the inhospitable barrens of Africa. Their discoveries of the ancient fossil records have advanced our knowledge back millions of years. Bokuru is an archaeological mystery based in a remote region of East Africa. The story is seen through James Henderson, a young Chicago attorney, who is retained to go to Africa to investigate the mysterious death of Dr. Richard Bronston.

On the way to the airport Jim learns that the cause of Dr. Bronston's death is not their only concern. Dr. Bronston told no one what he found at his excavation. The museum must decide whether Nancy Bronston should complete her father's field work, or close the field camp. Jim's assignment is suddenly expanded.

Jim flies to Africa where Nancy Bronston has preceded him to attend her father'sfuneral. He begins his African adventure unprepared for the twists and turns he will face on a journey into both modern and ancient death as well as the origins of mankind. The story ends with a surprise endin
