Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

According to Frump, lions in South Africa's Kruger National Park today "are killing people three times as often as fifteen years ago"; they are attacking, killing and eating refugees fleeing into the country from Mozambique by way of the park. Expanding on an article he wrote for Men's Journal, Frump (Until The Sea Shall Free Them) offers a deftly written study of the park's 2,000 lions and the refugees, and "the crossed paths the two species traveled." Frump delivers a dispassionate examination exploring how "efforts by conservationists to preserve lions are directly resulting in the loss of human life" due to an inadequate governmental response to the continuing refugee crisis. He balances first-person accounts of his travels in the Kruger and his attempts to literally walk in the same path as the refugees with sharp and fascinating portraits of Africans such as John Kohza, one of the first of what Frump calls "the modern surge of refugees through Kruger" in the 1970s. Kohza's flight from the horrors of Mozambican famine and persecution is one of the book's emotional high points. (Aug.)

From Booklist

When on a safari in South Africa, journalist and author (Until the Sea Shall Free Them, 2002) Frump began to hear rumors of lions attacking and eating people, mostly refugees from Mozambique, in Kruger National Park. Kruger is on the border between South Africa and Mozambique, and its remote location presents the best way for the poor to enter South Africa, seeking both safety and jobs. But the emigres must also run the gauntlet of Kruger's 2,000 lions. As Frump tells the story, the roles of heroes and villains blur: the victims are illegal aliens and therefore not "heroes," the bad guys are lions just doing what comes naturally to them, so they are not really "villains," and the park's rangers are caught in the middle as they try to protect one of the world's great parks despite its one unintended, lethal consequence. Frump's intention was to examine the problem of lions and refugees dispassionately, and in this he succeeds. The narrative style encompasses solutions for solving the problem. Nancy Bent
