Maar intussen het die wildernisse waarin hy geswerf het, begin verander. Bakkes was deel van die verandering. Hy het wilde plekke help toeganklik maak vir mense. Saam met daardie mense het stropers gekom. Bakkes vertel in hierdie boek oor sy stryd met stropers in Namibië. Hy beskryf ook hoe hy sy sielsgenoot, Veertjie, ontmoet en hoe hulle saamstaan teen die plundering van wild in Namibië.
