Format: Paperback
This is a great book with wonderful descriptions of life travelling with virtually no money through Africa.
He has written it so well and I would have loved to have been in his shoes.
I really have enjoyed his second book also "farewell Africa- A tramp comes home.
Written over a period of tramping of approximately 4 years working his passage to earn a crust.
Wonderful !

The book is a wonderful reminder of all the places my husband and I have travelled to throughout Africa and Arabia, in the course of a life spent mapping in Commonwealth and other countries.. Recommend to all similarly engaged.

A fantastic book. Written in such a way that it made easy reading, but I learnt so much. We had it as our Book for the Month at 'Bookies' but I appreciated it so much I bought my own copy.
