First UK edition First edition, 1988. Hardback. 267pp. Dust jacket in a protective sleeve. In 1985 Peter Hudson set off for Africa. Though he had already spent some time working on a farm in Zambia, building safari camps in the bush and following the backpack trail through the southern countries, he felt impelled to seek a wider experience of Africa and her people. He returned alone and on foot to spend a year in exploration. From Tangier he travelled across the Sahara to west Africa and the Sahel, then across central Africa to Kenya. Having missed a bus south from Nairobi, he took one travelling north and moved through Somalia to Djibouti on the Red Sea, ending his year with a bicycle ride down the Nile Valley to Cairo. Travelling like a leaf in the wind, Peter Hudson records his encounters and impressions with a freshness and freedom that mark him out as one of the most exciting travel writers of his generation. Book in very good condition and with an unread feel. Dust jacket very good and unclipped. Small are of scuffing to rear, otherwise minor edge wear only. Very slight fade to spine.
