Thunder Cave is a young adult adventure novel by Roland Smith. It is the first of a series of three books, followed by Jaguar and The Last Lobo.
After the death of his mother, fourteen-year-old Jacob Lansa plans and executes a solitary journey across the globe to Kenya to find his father. His father is a field biologist tracking elephant herds. Jacob deals with being beaten and robbed, coming face-to-face with a lion, and almost dying alone in Africa. Then he meets Supeet, a Masai man on his own quest – to bring the rains so desperately needed to end Kenya’s devastating drought. There are poachers and kidnappers, too – even reluctant readers will be drawn into this book’s fast-paced action!
