Overview

Posted to Nigeria in 1954, Scottish forester Donald MacIntosh spent the next thirty years traveling through the “white man’s grave”—the vast, mysterious, primeval forests of West and Central Africa. He heard tales of ancient Africa from the lips of hunters, fishermen, and witch doctors; encountered the incredible creatures of the forest; and befriended a range of remarkable and eccentric characters. With the forests now sadly decimated, this is a rare, poignant, and sometimes hilarious glimpse into Africa’s vanished past.
