The trouble is that the world has changed too much-even Africa, where Duncan undertakes a Cape-to-Cairo Odyssey on a bicycle. Like so many westerners coming to Africa, Duncan, it appears, would prefer Africa to remain a large theme park with elephants on the highways, natives in grass huts, and agriculture hidden by the tall grass. In South Africa, he seems to be as offended by the fenced farms and corn growing in rows, just as it does back in Kansas, as by apartheid. Duncan is imprisoned in Zambia, harassed by petty bureaucrats, sleeps and eats in unspeakable places, and endures the expected vagaries of weather and roads.

My husband enjoyed this very much. The time and travels of the people were right down his alley. There is a lot to be said about sitting in a quiet corner with a good book. The travels made in this book at this time is probably something I wouldn't do in this day and age.. Thank you !
