ISBN: 0747500789
Book Number: 42302
Bloomsbury 1989 8vo hardcover 290pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. Kingsley's 1893 West African route up the Ogooue River is retraced by a modern-day adventurer. As she travels in the footsteps of others, she reflects on the different faces of interpretive writing, selective recollection, and the disparity between fact and fiction. But ultimately this is Alexander's own story of discovery and can be read and enjoyed as such.
