by M. Norman Powell

      M. Norman Powell was born in South Africa in 1914, the fourth generation of a British family which immigrated there in the 1820's. Lured by tales of indescribable beauty, his family moved to Kenya when he was still a child. The young Powell found life-time friends in the African tribesmen, and they mentored him in the skills of wilderness survival, tracking and hunting. Powell mastered the ways of the African wilderness and connected with the African people. The Zulu tribal scouts gave him the name "Ingwe" meaning "the Leopard", and the Akamba people initiated him as a member and warrior of their tribe.

      As an adult supporting a family, politics forced Ingwe to leave his ranch and the wilderness he loved. He came to America where he eventually met Jon Young and co-founded Wilderness Awareness School in the 1980's. The book Ingwe is Powell's story of his experiences with the African wilderness and the African people.

      For those who seek a path closer to nature, Ingwe is an inspirational story, revealing the depth of connection that is possible with the natural world. I enjoyed the book for my personal interest, as further inspiration to keep developing my own wilderness skills. My kids enjoyed the book too, as I read it to them a little bit each morning before school. Ingwe. ISBN: 1-57994-013-7. 1995, 2001. 80 pages. Cost $15.00.
