Message from Nungwe
Men with blackwater die
Stamp of wilderness
Why do we fly?
He was a good lion
Still is the land
Praise God for the blood of the bull
And we be playmates, thou and I
Royal exile
Was there a horse with wings?
My trail is north
Na Kupa Hati M'Zuri
Errands of the wind
Birth of a life
Ivory and Sansevieria
I may have to shoot him
Captives of the rivers
What of the hunting, hunter bold?
Kwaheri means farewell
Search for a Libyan fort
Benghazi by candlelight
West with the night
Sea will take small pride
