The Rainbird: A Central African Journey (Lonely Planet Travel Literature Series)by Jan Brokken
The Rainbird is a classic travel story. Following in the footsteps of famous Europeans such as Albert Schweitzer and H.M. Stanley, Jan Brokken journeyed to Gabon in central Africa. A kaleidoscope of adventures and anecdotes, The Rainbird brilliantly chronicles the encounter between Europe and Africa as it was acted out on a side-street of history. It is also the compelling account of the author's own travels in one of the most remote and mysterious regions of Africa.
