Fiction but all too true to life,
This review is from: Let Live (Kindle Edition)
Development journalist David Fulshaw [aka John Madeley] takes unpaid leave from his newspaper to undertake a surreal journey by bike from West Africa to the Cape via East Africa. On the way he meets real people and cannot resist filing their stories back to his editor. In the globalised world of the media his pointed criticisms of those responsible for climate change in the most polluting nation on earth reach the ears of a CIA agency who with their global reach take steps to snuff out their source.
The plot of Let Live is page-turning fiction, the real-life stories are facts, facts told by actual people in Africa to Nigel Cross, who wrote At the Desert's Edge: Oral Histories from the Sahel http://www.amazon.co.uk/At-Deserts-Edge-Histories-Sahel/dp/1870670264/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1345626130&sr=1-5, and to John Madeley in the years before 2007 when David Fulshaw's ride is set.
