Format: Hardcover
Excellent book, one of the best i have read on travel and living in Africa, Donald has a real affinity for the people and cultures he came across while living here. I cant imagine a better antidote to all the usual negative tales to come out of this part of the world. Well worth buying and tell friends about it

An old timer remembers his life in West Africa, along with many characters larger than life. It's a way of life that has largely disappeared but old 'Mother Africa' is still there; a complex land of mammies, mimbo (palm wine) and majesty, juju (deep in the bush) and
discoveries still to be made.
Altogether an excellent read.

A rare delight. A collection of short stories, recollections (surely some apocryphal) by this forestry expert from Scotland who spent many years in the rainforests of West Africa. Sometimes racey, always beautifully written and all highly unusual, these stories are a treat to read.

This book is a real gem.
A charming, gentle story of the author's life in West Africa where he worked for the Forestry Commissions. This book is a series of short stories each giving a wonderful insight into a little known part of our World. More importantly it documents a time and place that has now vanished under the chainsaws of the timber merchants, forever lost.
I highly recommend this warm and entertaining book.

One of the finest books I've ever read without doubt. The authors anecdotes about his time and travels in West Africa are absolutely fascinating. His descriptions of the equatorial rain forests in particular are just spell-binding and also poignant. MacIntsh realised that the advent of the chain saw and the arrival of more multi-national timber companies would cause great environmental damage to the forests of West Africa and he has proven to be correct His descriptions of the larger than life characters he encountered during his time in Africa are also priceless. A must read.

This book is a fascinating and absorbing tale of a man's life living and working in parts of Africa where white men were rarely seen. It is written with affection for the place and the people, often amusing, giving an insight into a world which is rapidly disappearing. I also think that Donald Macintosh did well not to succumb to some deadly disease - the likelihood of which is what gave the area it's name of the White Man's Grave. Overall an enjoyable and easy read that is more about real life in a foreign land rather than the usual 'passing through' travelogues which can only give a fleeting impression of a place.

Well written - amusing - and highly entertaining to anybody who has spent any time in west Africa - and valuable to those who have not and would like a little insight.
