Baltimore Bowman Traditional Rendezvous
"Local bowhunter crafts his first novel"

"The novel embodies the same stark contrasts and harsh realities as its setting. South Africa's bush lands are very different, almost mystical with their exotic game and timeless traditions.... Isham's descriptions of the land and its occupants, resound with almost poetic elegance.... Isham's approach is almost meditative, spiritual in an earthy way as well as quite expressive....The relationships between blacks and whites in the bush are essential to their survival... how he shares his inner-most thoughts will appeal to female readers. The plot also includes a sneaky love story: rather than include a spoiler here you will have to read it."

"Author Brad Isham paints the breathtaking wonders of the savannahs of Africa, its people, its animals, and the challenges they all face in their constant quest for survival. A truly remarkable little book that will hold your interest throughout while you ponder the question: could there be Bridges of Madison County in Africa?

"In The Sound of the String, Brad Isham takes the reader on a safari into the heart of Africa - the land, the animals, and the people. It is an evocative tale that comes to a stunning conclusion. Highly recommended."
