Don’t Bruise My Pith Helmet

Julian Lambert, a talented musician and teacher, had had an unlikely desire that hardly matched his introverted personality. The shy music teacher had a unlikely fascination for nature and an intense interest in wildlife that had been motivated from his secret interest in books and movies that portrayed adventures in the wilds of Africa and India. To the shock of his family and fellow teachers, his bizarre interest had reached a level where he must go to Africa on his own to observe and photograph big game living naturally in the forest and on the grassy plains of East Africa. The time was in the middle 1950's during the unrest in colonial Africa. What Julian experienced in the wilds of East Africa is a fascinating story of a dynamic change in the life of a timid school teacher. His African adventure was not quite what he had romantically expected."
