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 discovers that the past still has its claws in him…

    " This was a really great book. I think it's even a good one for guys to read. There was a good mix of blood & guts as well as a few romances. "

    " Read this book many, many years ago. Decided to take it up again, hoping to enjoy it this time as i did the last. Was a good read, not quite as riviting as i remembered, but nice to be absorbed in something. "

    " I loved it the first time around, and now I'm reading it to Mom... in fact, we hope to reread the whole Courtney family series again! "

    " When The Lion Feeds is the first of Wilbur Smith's Courtneys of Africa series. I enjoyed his Egyptian series (River God, The Seventh Scroll, etc), so thought I'd tackle this one. Set in 19th century South Africa, it's interesting to ready a bit of the history of that part of the world - I would probably have got a little more out of it if I'd had a map beside me. It's fairly easy reading and a fun story. It did grip me as much as the Egypt series, but I'll start the next in the series at some stage. "
