You're crazy ... She'll take over and shove us out. I can just see this place in winter: no carpets, acres of wet newspaper underfoot, family huddled under blankets while the pig hogs the fire.'

Through Zimbabwe's darkest hours, Stone Hills has become a world in itself, a place where you might share your shower with an owl or your bed with a baby squirrel. Take a fresh look at the hospitality game with a couple whose crocodiles are named after unpopular guests. And follow the barefoot young David and his playmate, the warthog Poombi, as she relinquishes her place on the sofa to return to the wild - much to her indignation. Engaging and delightfully readable, this is a testament to one family's passion for Africa's wildlife and their conviction that nothing can change the essential nature of the land and its people. All the Way Home is the exhilarating and intensely moving story of a fiercely protected piece of Africa in the heart of the majestic Matobo Hills.

Somewhere along the way, he learned to love and trust, chose us for his family, and wormed his way into our hearts. He has changed from an anxious, cowering dog into a fun-loving, confident one. We've learned a lot from Jingle, too. He taught us some valuable lessons about the true nature of pit bulls and how fighting dogs can be rehabbed with patience and love. This is the story of how that happened, how Jingle went from fighter to lover, Rescued by Love.
