He roamed Northern Kenya for perhaps a century. The countrys earliest settlers told of him. Later safaris braved his remote forest haunts to see for themselves, while Africans spun a wealth of folklore about the Phantom of the North.

Little wonder. Mohammed seemed a relic of a past age of titans. He stood twelve feet at the shoulder. One of his enormous tusks measured eleven feet in length.In 1957, one of East Africas greatest safari guides, Donald Ker, wrote that Mohammed must be very, very old. Even as this story was written, the author learned that the aged tusker had died of natural causes in the green depths of his Mount Marsabit forest.The story, MIGHTY MO, unfolds in a part of Tanganyika the author visited and loved.

The places are real, even to the big hollow baobab tree. Jays father is like many game rangers in todays East Africa, struggling to save wildlife in an era of change that sees wild animals vanishing like Americas bison and passenger pigeon. The wildlife area near Lake Manyara is now a national park.

Long may it survive with its elephants and million other wonders.
