Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Jacob fulfills a promise to his grandfather, Taw, and travels with him back to the Hopi reservation where he was born, he gets a lot more than a quiet trip to the desert. He quickly discovers that the Hopi on the reservation are divided over a lobo, a Mexican wolf, that people say is hunting on the reservation. There are some who want to kill the lobo, and others who are angry enough to kill anyone who gets in the way. The lobo is an endangered species, thought to have disappeared from New Mexico all together. Jake knows that if the lobo does exist, he must do everything in his power to help it. But time is running out!

Synopsis:

Determined, after his mother's accidental death, to foil his stepfather's plans for his future, fourteen-year-old Jacob travels alone to Africa in search of his father, a biologist studying elephants in a remote area of Kenya.

Thunder cave may only be said to be a children's book but it would still be a good quick and easy read over the weakened. It is a story about a young boy who's mom is ran over by a car in New York. He then must go to africa to find his dad that has been saving Elephants from bounty hunters and he has not seen in years.
