Autor strávil třiadvacet let jako strážce a opatrovník divokých zvířat v severních oblastech Keni. Tato doba také tvoří jádro jeho autobiografického vyprávění, jímž je čtenář vtažen do nitra africké přírody, mezi domorodce alví přátele i zákeřně číhající nebezpečí. Je tu také rezervováno místo proslulé lvici Else, o níž napsala autorova manželka knihu, později zfilmovanou. Adamsonovy komentáře k přírodnímu životu jsou odrazem jeho důvěrného poznání
