Africa, Africa! is a tour de force by a distinguished writer. Africa, Africa! - Frederic Hunter. CHAPTER: At the Edge of the Jungle - An Introduction

Africa, Africa! is a tour de force by a distinguished writer. It is powerful and sometimes chilling in its emotional landscapes, accurately conveying the disorientation and dislocation of Africa during the consolidation of local rule. Yet the book is also filled with one-of-a-kind characters and jaw-dropping events thinly disguised as fiction. Ultimatly, the reader is left with the humanity of Africans and the risks and also riches of cross-cultural exploration. CHAPTER: At the Edge of the Jungle - An Introduction. THE COUNTRY COUNTRY WAS CALLE D THE CONGO THEN, as it is now once again.
