West with Giraffes by Lynda Rutledge Book Review
“West with Giraffes: A Novel” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later. Before starting the reading or downloading, here is the summary of the book that Woodrow Wilson Nickel, age 105, feels his life ebbing away. But when he learns giraffes are going extinct, he finds himself recalling the unforgettable experience he cannot take to his grave. It’s 1938. The Great Depression lingers.Hitler is threatening Europe, and world-weary Americans long for wonder. They find it in two giraffes who miraculously survive a hurricane while crossing the Atlantic. What follows is a twelve-day road trip in a custom truck to deliver Southern California’s first giraffes to the San Diego Zoo. Behind the wheel is the young Dust Bowl rowdy Woodrow. Inspired by true events, the tale weaves real-life figures with fictional ones, including the world’s first female zoo director, a crusty old man with a past, a young female photographer with a secret, and assorted reprobates as spotty as the giraffes.
Brief West with Giraffes by Lynda Rutledge
West with Giraffes has been on my to-be-read pile since it came out, and I regret taking so long to get to it. For some reason, the title made me think of Beryl Markham’s marvelous memoir, West with the Night, so I was expecting something along the lines of a safari story. With that in mind, being in the midst of catching up on my reading of books set in Africa, I started this one. West with Giraffes ends up being completely different from my expectations but ever-so-delightful nonetheless. Told in the first person by a war veteran, Woodrow Wilson Nickel, who feels his life ebbing away. At the ripe age of 105, he has but days left to live and sets out to write the story that has haunted him all his life. His present, trapped in a VA nursing home, is interspersed with his past, things that happened when he was seventeen years old.
