African Pearls and Poisons

"If you desire an exhilarating read of a family's life during Idi Amin's savage reign, then this book's for you." Doug Abraham, Writer & Columnist. "The Jacques Family's unique Safaris passed through some of the most beautiful - often life threatening - landscapes and situations on earth, and survived. Enjoy!" MacDonald Coleman, Author. "Leo invites you into a world that has the same capacity for richness, complexity and openness that the fictional universe offers. A great read." Jim J. Nolan, Editor/Journalist. "This is surely life as it was at the time of Idi Amin." Marshall Dunn, Kampala School Teacher. "AFRICAN PEARLS AND POISONS," Idi Amin's Uganda; Kenya; Zaire's Pygmies, takes you on a series of Safaris, by a family of four, through East and Central Africa, in 1971-72, to attain freedom from Amin and return to North America to unveil their tale - undercover until now. Amin's army and death squad, kills a reported 300,000 humans, who, for the most part, are innocent victims of his, "Economic War." A Swahili saying: -- "When two bull elephants fight, it is the grass who suffers most," fits this situation. In Kenya, the Jacques family, experienced the breathtaking beauty of a country dubbed, "The World's Safari Capital." In Zaire, they safari to the cannibalized and now extinct Twa Pygmies of the Ituri Rainforest, in their temporary camp, past Semliki, on the Mountain of the Moons trail. This book, like Joseph Conrad's "HEART OF DARKNESS" inspires a reader to think differently about East and Central Africa.
