Call: Life with a Basenji

Originally published as Call-of the-Marsh by Books of Rhodesia in 1978, this is a classic account of how Jill Wylie trained (or tried to train) a Basenji – marvellous, cat-like, independent-minded dogs that can’t bark – to track and find other lost dogs in Zimbabwe’s rugged eastern mountains. A unique career for a unique woman, with profound understanding of animals and unquenchable love for their well-being.
