Africa's Laughter and Tears: Overland Adventure Through 26 African Countries

eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: $8.99
Visiting 26 African countries in the course of a single year has enabled the author to get behind the stereotypical picture of modern Africa. Mia Svoboda has written an excellent book about Africa, in which she draws on her exceptional experience of a long journey. The issues are presented through wonderful stories about people she met on the way – people she talked to, people with whom she ate, danced, cried and laughed. Her approachability, her powers of observation and understanding and her ability to conjure up atmosphere and place have enabled her to see under the surface and to bring the real Africa close to the reader. The book presents a complex picture of Africa as Mia covers current problems of poverty, adoption of black children by whites, agriculture, pollution, deforestation, lack of water, endangered cultures and animals, western aid etc. She brings Africa and the West together in individual stories that remind us there are no black and white truths.
