One of the most famous and best novels to come out of Africa. After four trips there, I was in love with and fascinated by the culture of Africa and this book really takes you inside the head of a tribesman and his life. Written by an African author and thoroughly enjoyable. Not Western bashing. Instead, an honest examination of what life is like even today for many Africans. A don't miss book for culture lovers or the curious. All the people I've told to go to the Developing World at least once in life to understand the world better, read this. It's a good start.
