When the Lion Feeds Book Excerpt:

He began life at his twin brother's side, soon running wild on his father's ranch on the edge of Africa. But violence, desire, and fate sent Sean Courtney into exile--where he would fight and love his way to extraordinary success and heartbreaking failure... In a place called The Ridge of White Waters, Sean made a life-long friendship, mined a fortune of gold, and met his own demons. Then an act of cunning betrayal struck--and ignited a new adventure to a new frontier. From facing the murderous charge of a towering bull elephant to watching men die unspeakable deaths, Sean fought new enemies, forged new allies--and dreamed of establishing a family on a farm of his own. But in Wilbur Smith's When the Lion Feeds, the young man who had lived by his courage, sweat, and blood was about to discover that the past still had its claws in him...

On Leopard Rock A Life of Adventures Book Excerpt:

Wilbur Smith has lived an incredible life of adventure, and now he shares the extraordinary true stories that have inspired his fiction. I've been writing novels for over fifty years. I was lucky enough to miss the big wars and not get shot, but lucky enough to grow up among the heroes who had served in them and learn from their example. I have lucked into things continuously. I have done things which have seemed appalling at the time,disastrous even, but out of them have come another story or a deeper knowledge of human character and the ability to express myself better on paper, write books which people enjoy reading. Along the way, I have lived a life that I could never have imagined. I have been privileged to meet people from all corners of the globe, I have been wherever my heart has desired and in the process my books have taken readers to many, many places. I always say I've started wars, I've burned down cities and I've killed hundreds of thousands of people - but only in my imagination! From being attacked by lions to close encounters with deadly reef sharks, from getting lost in the African bush without water to crawling the precarious tunnels of gold mines, from marlin fishing with Lee Marvin to near death from crash-landing a Cessna airplane, from brutal school days to redemption through writing and falling in love, Wilbur Smith tells us the intimate stories of his life that have been the raw material for his fiction. Always candid, sometimes hilarious and never less than thrillingly entertaining, On Leopard Rockis testament to a writer whose life is as rich and eventful as his novels are compellingly unputdownable.

Life as a Hunt Book Excerpt:

The "extensive wilderness" of Zambia’s central Luangwa Valley is the homeland of the Valley Bisa whose cultural practices have enriched this environment for centuries. Beginning with the intrusions of warlords and later British colonials, successive generations have experienced the callousness and challenges of colonialism. Their homeland, a slender corridor surrounded by three national parks and an escarpment, is a microcosm of the political, economic and cultural battlefields surrounding most African protected areas today. The story of the Valley Bisa diverges from the myths that conservationists, administrators, and philanthropists, tell about Africa’s environmental and wildlife crises.

Summary of Wilbur Smith s On Leopard Rock Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Africa is a vast, ancient continent with endless plains and forests. It is a country of death and renewal, and humans are only visiting. #2 A hunter was watching a pride of lions feed on a carcass, when he saw a lioness climb onto her back legs and begin feeding. He never shot the lioness, because he knew that he would be in big trouble if he harmed a female. #3 The hunting impulse is part of every man’s soul. Some suppress it, some disguise it in behavior that appears strange and unknowable, and some start wars. I choose to constantly move forward, never looking back. #4 The big game hunter is no longer revered, and our heroes have changed. We have media icons, celebrities, and perhaps not as real as the gods of the past.
