Library Journal - Library JournalThis is a splendid guide to an African country that few people visit, though it appears to be worth a journey. Formerly Nyasaland, Malawi is located in a rift valley, with Lake Malawi running much of the length of the country. It is a poor country, with a still-developing infrastructure, but apparently relatively safe and boasting a plethora of game and national parks, lakes, and mountains. This guide has all the things one expects from a travel book: history, hotels, currency, telephone numbers, etc., and other delightful bonuses; of especial interest is the extensive list of animals one might see, with descriptions and scientific names. Also included are sections on cities and towns, places subdivided by region, the economy and business opportunities, and a section on special features, such as religion, music, food, and vegetation. The book is lavishly illustrated with over 250 color photographs and many maps. Essential for any travel library.-George M.
