Overview

When award-winning writer Laura Resnick set out to cross Africa, she knew it would be exciting and she knew it would be exotic. But she didn't know that she'd; be forced to drive through a live mine field in the Sahara; be attacked by bandits in Tanzania; be arrested in Nigeria and Central African Republic; watch a ceremony where the men of a tribe stab them selves in the belly with real knives; stay in a campsight where lions like to rip open the tents; fall out of her boat while running the Zambezi's rapids; play with wild gorill as in the mountains of Zaire; go on a spear-hunt with the pygmies of the Ituri Rain Forest

Here, with the same wonderful style that has won her major awards in both the romance and the science fiction fields, Laura Resnick recounts her eight-month journey across the Dark Continent; and her remarkable return trip to a politically unstable South Africa.

Laura takes us on an adventure I didn't see coming. She seems to be more of an "indoor girl", but is faced with many unexpected choices and rises to the occasion. Her casual tone with interesting details paints a picture of life in Africa I just can't imagine. Although this was written many years ago, it is still relevant and a fascinating read today. Thanks, Laura, for taking me on your journey.
