Product description


When Ffyona Campbell vowed to walk around the world, she was only 16. Now at 26 she has only Europe left to conquer. By far the hardest stage of this incredible journey was Africa which took her two and a half years and which she completed in September 1993. This very personal account of this amazing achievement tells of her relationship with the women of the villages she passed through, how she learnt their traditions and skills; how she was nearly murdered, almost raped, taken for a cannibal spirit, stoned and mobbed when they suspected she was a slave merchant. It tells how her anger turned to contentment as she found peace within herself and how each evening her campsite became a home when she fell in love with one of her drivers.
