Issues of the Just Now News go back well over a decade, or nearly one-third of Cowabunga Safaris’ existence. Many articles from previous issues can be found in the book I’D RATHER BE ON SAFARI, written by Cowabunga’s very own self-declared “President for Life,” Gary K. Clarke. This book is available for purchase through the “Merchandise” page of this website.
