Customer Review

on 19 September 2010
This book paints a realistic picture of what it must have been like for many tribes in Africa to see the incomprehesible passing away of their autonomy with the arrival of the European - the red stranger. Seen from the point of view of the tribesmen, the author manages to depict the limitations of their capacity to percieve what is happening. Notable is the tale of the men who leave for the European war, with no idea what that is or where it is, and their subsequent return. They are unable even to begin to talk about it, the very concepts so strange to their erstwhile fellows as to be meaningless. It is a strangely touching account, still relevant today.
