Happy Birthday…and a little celebration

Since we are celebrating our first birthday, perhaps a little self-indulgence is allowed 😉

Here some of the reviews for “Healing Rhinos and Other Souls” as found on amazon.com

Beautifully written full of heart and SOUL! – Absolutely loved this book. Was reluctant to take this one on since I’d been on a stream of biographies and thought that justice could not be done to a story written by other than the person for whom the story was about. Was I wrong! This is one of my favorites. Rohrbach obviously cared so much for Walter and his life story that she did not miss a beat in making sure the story flowed wonderfully. Anyone would have been honored to have meet this man and lucky to have had him as their veterinarian.”- Rebekkah Hammond, August 3, 2014

Dr Walter Eschenburg’s Biography – I knew Walter and love reading both about him and listening to the stories he had to tell. You can really hear his voice. I have to thank Walter for saving my pony from African horse sickness on two occasions. He was a wonderful vet who worked tirelessly despite the heat. I would have loved to have accompanied him on his rounds but don’t think I could have kept up with him.” – Sophie Neville, March 3, 2014

“A Special Story – A most wonderful story and great read for all those who are interested in the bush and (sometimes atypical) bushveld medicine!” – E A G Herschell, January 12, 2014

“Great – The author and the person she’s writing about are both great story tellers. Quite a few humorous stories. Also provides a good view on the effect of ww2 on the people. – Brian Eschenburg, January 1, 2014

And on amazon.co.uk

Healing Rhinos – A really wonderful account of Walter`s career as a Bushveld vet and also that of his family`s sojourn in Germany during the war. I loved it Tha Eschenbergs were/are very special people. – Margaret Pleming, 12 June 2014

Africa at its best – Loved this book, perhaps because I know the person who wrote it, but would have loved the down to earth approach to the life of an African vet. – Angela Ashworth, 20 February 2014

…and on Amazon.de

Ein Tierarzt mit Wurzeln in Luebeck – Sehr lebendig wird das Leben in Südafrika erzählt und die Erinnerungen an die Zeit und die Familie in Deutschland. Ein liebenswertes Buch, leicht zu lesen – obwohl bisher nur auf Englisch. – Kaete47, 13 Januar 2014

Thank you very much again to everybody!

    Net om te sê hoe ek jou boek oor oom Walter se lewe geniet het: baie dankie daarvoor! Ek het hom -en Topsy – absoluut belewe soos ons hulle deur die jare leer ken het. Kon die boek nie neersit toe ek eers begin lees het nie. Somtyds hardop gelag, dan weer ‘n traan gepink!
