9781411693456: From Dust to Snow: Bush-Faller

Traveling and living abroad can be a wonderful and rewarding experience, a dream come true for some, but it can also be a horrific and interminable nightmare. "From Dust to Snow: Bush-Faller" chronicles the true-life experiences of (Bush-Fallers) Africans (primarily Cameroonians), in Europe and the United States. Featuring more than twenty accounts from students, asylum seekers and the employed, contributors in this work of 'edutainment' ferry you through their experiences, first-hand, from the moment the idea of traveling overseas was conceived, through departure emotions, first impressions upon arrival, culture shock, hardships, comic moments, high points of each life, and even re-entry shock, including deportation. One way or the other, you should find yourself on one of the pages of this book, either as a foreigner or as a host. Prepare yourself for what is about to happen; Discover the African Dream, a Dream far bigger than Bush-falling.

From the Author:

This book fits into a very special class of its own. The experiences narrated are myriad yet compelling; they are enriching and inspiring. The timing is exquisite, given the craze, dreams and puzzles that adorn the now popular "bush falling" phenomenon in Cameroon and other developing countries. This is such a rare treasure that must be given its legitimate position on all personal, family and school bookshelves. (Peter Shu-Nfor Tangyie)

Go round Europe and the U.S.A. in a few hours by reading this exciting work. Written in simple, colloquial English, this easy to read but also highly educative book amalgamates on-the-spot experiences from people of all ages, walks of life, social class and sex. It is a must read to all African youths, especially UNIVERSITY students. It is worth more than every dime and calorie you spend on it. Ayu’nwi N. Nebafusi (University of Buea, Cameroon.)

The stories all sound like fiction but they are real life experiences; thrilling, funny, sad, too real to be true. FROM DUST TO SNOW is a recommendable reference for all, the young and the old, dying to "fall bush." Mrs Magarate and Dr Chemuta Banda (President of the Human rights Freedoms Commission, Yaounde Cameroon)

About the Author:

Dr Wilfred and Lydia Ngwa were born in Cameroon. As Africans living in Europe and the US, they found themselves in a unique position to interact with many internationals (mostly other Africans) coming for studies, asylum and work. This book would not be possible without the willingness and openness of these people to share their experiences, however joyful or painful; foremost thanks go to them. They are the real authors of the stories.
