The greatest Africa book every written, 8 Jan. 2001
When I first read this book I was sitting in a rural school half way up Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. I found this book on dusty bookshelf, left on its own in a collection of school books. I opened the book which starts its journey in Zanzibar....and follows the adventures and journeys of all the famous employers from Livingstone to Stanley to Baker and Speke...... If your were to read this book in Europe or America you would be on the next flight to Africa. Since reading the book, I have come back to England and brought another copy and read it more times than anything........
