They recommend that you write about your own experiences in life when starting out as a writer And despite the early age that Wilbur Smith first put pen to paper he had already racked up enough adventures to inspire several books l really enjoyed learning about his early life growing up in the African bush of the 1940s and 1950s The days when hunting was for food for the table not sport not just the family s but also the people who worked the land with them from the local villages Wilbur Smith the boy along with his best friend would take off for the day walking miles in search of elusive game and still make it home for supper Sometimes barely It was very different time and attracted some interesting characters from all walks of life to farm this rich landWhat also impressed me about Wilbur Smith s approach to writing was the commitment to researching each book meticulously including spending time on a whaling ship working side by side with workers in a gold mine and immersing himself in the life he was portraying I have read all of Wilbur Smith s books some of the earlier novels at least three times I find my reading enjoyment has only deepened as my experience of the world has matured Having read this memoir I am looking forward to revisiting his books with a new perspective one that respects the amount of time and thought that went into each and every one of themIt was also fascinating to read about the 1960s in South Africa in relation to Wilbur Smith s books that were banned because of apartheid I was in school in Cape Town at the time and at that age didn t really see the pervasive influence on all aspects of society that this produced I read those banned books on our return to the UK when I was 11 years old little knowing that my school friends would be denied that pleasure for many yearsApart from the stories about Africa there are also other challenges during the writing process and it would seem that dogged determination is also one of Wilbur Smith s attributes Hollywood it would seem is a jungle in its own rightIf you love the books of Wilbur Smith then I do recommend that you read this exciting adventure story that reads like one of his novels than a non fiction account of his life There are thrills and danger as well as inspiration for all writers to keep doing what you love do it well and enjoy life to the full
