Bitsy, sensing danger ahead, warns the others to stay back

An excerpt from my book. The illustration is from the journal of the adventurous Bitsy Armstrong. Personally, I can't wait to see what happens next - but whatever it is - it is up against a hard deadline. All must be told and concluded by Sept. 20th. I've led them on a trek from Zanzibar to the Zambesi where a harrowing encounter with a nile crocodile nearly ends the life of a dear friend - a friend, alas who lacks the essential pluck and steely nerve necessary to hack her way through the Ituri forest.
