The countries in Southern Africa offer such a wealth of experiences. I know this because I lived in Zambia and took every opportunity possible to travel the region.

I searched for whales off the coast of South Africa, explored for wild animals in Zambia and Zimbabwe, and encountered fascinating traditional life of the San people in Botswana. I also contracted malaria at the base of the world's largest sand dunes in Sossusvlei, Namibia.

Along the way, I searched for collections of folk tales. Although most of these stories were from previously collected editions (which I rewrote with a touch of my humor), my most favorite stories were told to me around a traditional campfire when I spent two nights with the Herrero people in northeastern Namibia.
