As a child, Donald MacIntosh's heroine was Mary Kingsley, a nineteenth-century traveler who successfully took on the forbidding forests and swamps of West Africa. It was an adventure he was to follow for much of his adult life, spending thirty years as a forester in the so-called 'white man's grave'. MacIntosh, however, more than lived to tell his tales, which he does so here with characteristic gusto and relish. As always, they are rich with characters and humor.

Following the success of Travels in the White Man’s Grave comes this further collection of Donald MacIntosh’s immensely entertaining memoirs of his African travels. As always, the tales are rich with characters and humor: Laval, the temperamental but highly successful fishing baboon; Jig–Time Charlie, ladies' man and local footballing legend; and the beautiful Titi, who employs her feminine guile and cat droppings to win an international angling competition. As sharp and cutting as the teeth of a tiger fish, Forest of Memories finds Donald MacIntosh, once again, in splendidly wicked form.About the Author:
Donald MacIntosh was born in 1927 and is the eldest son of a Perthshire woodcutter and a mother from the Isle of Mull. For 30 years he worked in the rainforests of West Africa. He contributes widely to national magazines such as The Oldie.
