As a boy, Lyall Watson spent his summers on the remote southern coast of Africa, on the Cape of Storms. All the mothers of vacationing families, his own included, worried about their restless sons. Their fathers were off on distant fronts, fighting a world war. It was Watson's grandmother who finally came up with a solution, marking the beginning of a boys' club that was not so different from the community of early tribes. Watson shares a story from his memoir Elephantoms: Tracking the Elephant.
