When the Lion Feeds is volume one of six novels featuring "The Courtneys" although the books are not written in chronological order. The family saga begins with twins Garrick and Sean growing up on a cattle ranch in the Natal area of Southern Africa. When the Zulu nation raids the area the two brothers and their father join a brigade to fight and defend their land.

After the war the twins return home to the ranch but when a horrible misunderstanding fomented by Garrick's wife occurs Sean sets out on his own to start a new life. Along the was he meets Duff, a mining engineer, and they decide to seek their fortune in the Witwatersrand, the site of a frenzied gold rush. Over several years the partners amass a large fortune through hard work, determination and cunning.but end up losing everything when they are blindly deceived by another powerful man. Seeking a new beginning they travel to "The Wilderness" to hunt elephant for their ivory tusks. During their travels in the bush several momentous events occur that I will leave to the reader to discover for themselves.

This is first and foremost an excellent adventure story but it is much more than that. it is a story about the friendship between two rugged men, the loyalty between a master and his slave and the unspoken love of a man for a woman. It is also about the love of the rugged African land and the savagery and beauty that define it as well as the freedom offered to those who seek its treasures. This is a tremendous book highly recommended and I eagerly look forward to book two, The Sound of Thunder.

I've been a huge fan of Wilbur Smith for many years. A friend introduced me to his works with Monsoon and then Birds of Prey, and then I skipped over to River God and read the entire Egypt series. From there it was random and I've enjoyed every novel of Smith's I perused. I have re-read some of them several times. Recently, I decided to start at the beginning of the Courtney series thinking the setting would be a precursor to that of Francis' and the story would progress through the years with the later novels bringing the descendants from England to Africa yet this story starts in Africa several hundred years later than the subsequent. Nevertheless, I settled down for an exciting adventure just as I've come to expect from a master story teller. Was I ever disappointed. This is probably the most boring book I've ever read. It drones on and on and on, endlessly descriptive of highly mundane conversations, travels and goings-on. What little action there was is so far below the level I've come to know from Smith. Beginning with part two, I found myself turning pages unread to get to the end of the meandering about whatever it was and on to a change of subject and pace. I couldn't wait to get to the end having to force myself to finish something I had no interest in. The characters were disappointing, especially Katrina who had neither the strength nor fortitude of the later Courtney women, and I never found Duff relatable in the least. I found him to be someone you would recognize in passing but never know much about. Garrick, as the opposite-in-every-way twin was believable though I found Sean Courtney to be totally lacking in the qualities that made Hal and Tom great. The ending was a let down as it seems the writer merely ran out of ink. It's been weeks since I finished this book but, although I have thoroughly enjoyed everything else I've read by Smith, I just can't seem to talk myself into downloading the next one in the series.

It has been a long time since I read "River God" by Wilbur Smith and I was curious to check out the first book in his Courtney Family Adventures series. I think I read that this was his first novel or at least one of his first (copyright 1964) and I was surprised at the literary skill he displayed so early in his writing career. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would not hesitate to recommend it to any fan of historical fiction. His development of characters, especially Sean Courtney and Dufford Charleywood, is exceptional. In fact, Dufford is one of the more unique characters I have come across in literature and it was hard for me to put the book down whenever he was part of the "action". I also enjoyed his depiction of mid to late 1800's life in South Africa and found his description of the South Aftrica countryside realistic and fascinating although I cannot attest to its accuracy as I have never been there. I give the book 4.4 stars and will most certainly read several more books in the Courtney series in the months to come.

This is the first book of the Courtney series and where you should start if you want to dive into an engrossing saga that tells the story of modern man's impact on the African continent at the same time that it reveals the riveting tale of a family's constantly changing fortune and lasting legacy. Wilbur Smith brings it all alive with vivid descriptions and superb pacing. If occasionally he spends a little more time on battle scenes or the unfolding of history than I would like, I can easily forgive him because his characters grab hold of you and won't let go. You simply must find out what's happening to them...and then there's Africa itself beguiling you with its amazing wildlife and native peoples. No one does Africa better than Wilbur Smith...

I loved the storytelling and the excitement of the 19th Century African continent. As a boy becomes a man and must accept the good and bad that life throws at him. I would love to read the Kindle edition of part two of the Courtney series. Can’t find it. Is it available?

I am reading the last 3 books in the Courtney adventures, and when I finish, it will be time to start all over again. There are so many books and each book is over 500 pages, it takes a while to read each one. Wilbur Smith is an amazing author and each book is such a joy to read. His books are exciting, sad, funny, and each character is well defined so you know them like a sister or brother. If you like adventures and African history, these are the books for you. Go to the authors website to see more info on these adventures and order to read them. When the Lion Feeds is the first in the series. Oh your gonna love these books.
