Ryan Orr’s book Days of the Seven is a wondrous adventure tale that will appeal to children and adults. Jeremy Ruhl makes an appearance as the catalyst for an expedition to find a lost city in Africa. If you have read¬†The Life and Times of Jeremy Ruhl by Mr. Orr, then you will be just as excited by this book as you were by that one. The main child hero in this book however is Kale Herrington, Jeremy’s good friend.

Kale loves his father very much and does not want to be separated from him for a year since he is a member of the expedition, so he smuggles himself aboard one of the ships. A few days after setting sail Kale is discovered and reunited with his father. Doctor Parser, a member of the expedition, is not thrilled with Kale being on board since Professor Goddard, the leader of the expedition, has reluctantly brought his granddaughter with him and feels that children will just be a nuisance. Fortunately for everyone concerned, this is less of a problem than expected.

Once the expedition starts out in Tripoli the adventure begins. They will have to worry about other explorers who are greedy for gold, pygmies, head hunters, and a dog-man army.  After a horrific sandstorm destroys most of the expedition, Kale, his father, and some other survivors are captured by dog warriors and taken to the city that they had sought. Once there, they discover more than what they had bargained for.

If you are a fan of the adventures of Verne or Burroughs, then this book should be on your bookshelf along with those classics. I rate it 5 stars out of 5.
