    New Creation by John Poynton

    Here is a novel that explores the soul of the African wilds, along with one of the great issues of our time: the conflict between materialistic and spiritual worldviews. It plumbs the turbulent experiences of an African missionary’s son who leaves the mission for the life of a game ranger. Unforeseen events involving reserve staff, visitors and the primeval African wilds overturn and revolutionise his thinking.

    Book Reviews

    "I want to express how much I enjoyed Professor John Poynton's book New Creation, particularly as I have in the past worked in the Zambian bush.

    The narrative is enhanced by the author's personal experience. This is skillfully woven into the interaction of the spiritual aspect of manand nature against the backdrop of the African bush with all its beauty and ruthlessness. A truly thought provoking read."
