Description

Jacob Lansa is an ordinary New York kid-riding his bike, fixing himself snacks after school, and anxiously awaiting letters from his father in Kenya. Then, suddenly, his mother is killed in a terrible accident. Pushed aside by his stepfather, Jacob makes an impulsive decision to set out on his own to find his father. In Africa, with minimal supplies and only his trusty mountain bike for transportation, Jacob faces wild lions, terrible grassland fires, and vicious elephant poachers. His search for his father seems hopeless until he meets Supeet, a Masai on a quest to end the drought that is devastating his country. Working together, the two struggle to find Jacob's father, end the drought, and save the last of the great elephants from extinction. With non-stop action, exotic settings, and Johnny Heller's vivid narration, Thunder Cave takes listeners to the wilds of Africa for the adventure of a lifetime.

Professional reviews

"Johnny Heller succeeds again; this time he introduces listeners to Kenyans, Native Americans, and a 14-year-old American boy. Jacob lives in NYC. When his mother dies, he decides to go to the African bush to find his scientist father. Jacob overcomes many trials, illustrating to kids what a real hero of their own age can be like. Heller is splendid as he portrays a range of ages and cultures while bringing life to an exciting story. Along with learning varied facts about Africa, children will be introduced to some Masai and Swahili words, which are peppered throughout this believable adventure. Older children, young adults, and those interested in action stories or Africa will be entranced. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
