I read this in 2003. A perfect balance of humor and tragedy set in East Africa. The author describes landscape, people and politics in gorgeous, accessible style. I was so moved after reading Dangerous Beauty I traveled to Kenya for a safari with Mark Ross. The experience led to additional travels and ultimately, a year-long safari of my own across sub-Saharan Africa. I have read some fabulous books but none inspired such change in my own life; change that resonates even today.
