Red cloth-bound boards with gold title to spine, ochre endpapers, illustrated half-title, title and contents pages, 48 full-colour illustrations, over 100 b&w illustrations, 4 maps, index. In this refreshing new study Tim Severin takes a shrewd look at the whole scintillating canvas of the African adventure and narrates a story packed with lively incidents and curious sidelights.
