About this title

From Library Journal:

It is not much easier to travel across Africa today than it was in 1869 when Stanley set out in search of Livingstone. At least that is what BBC journalist Hone discovered. Hone was looking for the romantic Africa of his boyhood reading. Instead, he found grinding urban poverty, corrupt officialdom, depleted wildlife, and an often inoperative transportation system. He also found some colorful expatriate characters, including a girlfriend, so his book takes on the flavor of a novel. Countries visited were Zaire, Rwanda, and Kenya. This is a provocative look, through Western eyes, at what Africa is becoming, and it makes fine reading as well. Recommended for most public and academic libraries. Harold M. Otness, Southern Oregon State Coll. Lib., Ashland
