Reviews

"A remarkable, fascinating book by a courageous and perceptive writer. One of the most exciting books to emerge from Africa in recent years" -- Alexander McCall Smith "An intrepid adventure. In making and describing this journey, Tim Butcher has followed in the footsteps of Stanley and Conrad. It takes a lot of guts to yomp through the Congo and he obviously has plenty of those. But it is the wit and passion of the writing which keeps you engrossed" -- Giles Foden "This is a terrific book, an adventure story about a journey of great bravery in one of the world's most dangerous places. It keeps the heart beating and the attention fixed from beginning to end" -- Fergal Keane "A masterpiece" -- John le Carre "Tim Butcher deserves a medal for this crazy feat. I marvel at his courage and his empathy" -- Thomas Pakenham
