Author: Mike Resnick
Date: 1988-09-00
Type: NOVEL
Series: Birthright Universe
Language: English
Note: Most of Mike Resnick's science fiction novels and series fit into an overarching future history, the Birthright universe. In the Birthright universe, 2908 A.D. is 1 G.E. (Galactic Era). The stories in the mosaic novels ''Birthright: The Book of Man'' (1982) and ''Ivory'' (1988) are set throughout this timeline.
Synopsis: From the back cover of the Tor 1ast paperback printing: "It is the year 6303 of the Galactic Era, and Duncan Rojas, Senior Researcher and Authenticator for Braxton's Records of Big Game, has received a most unusual visitor. He is Bukoba Mandaka - the last of the Maasi. He searches for Malima Temboz, the Mountain That Walks... known to the world as the Kilimanjaro Elephant. His bones are but dust. His spirit remains, restless and incomplete - his spirit, and somewhere in the vast reaches of the Galaxy, his tusks... Bukoba Mandaka must find those tusks, and find them soon. Rojas cannot resist the challenge. And the quest soon becomes his own, as he begins to catch a glimpse of the elusive power of ancient Africa and the magic surrounding the greatest hunting trophy ever taken."
