"Delightful . . . A book in which humor arm-wrestles with the pathos of paradise lost in modern Africa."
"Peterson cuts a swath through east, west, and central Africa. . . . And if you come along, you will be sure to meet some wild characters—not all of them chimps—have some chuckles, learn about animals, and reflect on the continent's troubles."
"Peterson has a lively style, and one of those great careers with adventure built in. The book came out in 1995 and was ignored. Happily, it’s back, and it’s delightful."
—National Geographic Adventure
"Peterson brings a wealth of good humor, a snappy irony, and a laid-back style to what were surely travels with a hard edge of difficulty. It's easy to admire the man and easier still to admire this droll, shrewd piece of travel writing."
"From malaria-infested waters and jungles to desert wastelands, Peterson explores the real Africa. . . . This book is a journal of his adventures, filled with head-on humor, frustration, and grit."
