Amazing adventure full of compassion for the DR Congo and its people!, 9 Jan. 2012
This book is fantastic, a page turner, I could not put the book down! I got the book as a christmas gift. I really enjoyed the authors genuine nature throughout the book. It is hilarious at moments and comical throughout, and full of intense interactions with local people. His love for the people clearly comes through Phil Harwood's adventure really shows what can be achieved when you put your mind to it. The book has information on the congo and previous explorers and reflects on the Congolese relationships with westerners. It is a mans long term dream becoming reality and all that comes with it. This is adventurous as it comes!
