Customer Reviews

Africa...a land of such contrasts. The breathtaking beauty of the land and its people versus the wide scale corruption, greed and horrific atrocities committed...one human to another. The author vividly “paints this picture” in such an open and honest way; writing with such a depth of feeling, thought and sensitivity...thus allowing me to almost “be there”. This is an inspiring story of courage to “follow the path of heart as opposed to the path of convenience”; the will of the human spirit to survive and adapt to life’s situations and the flexibility to always “make a plan”. I am an African; perhaps the reason why this story resonated so well with me. In my opinion a very worthwhile read. The author’s words to his sons...“to enjoy every sandwich”...I think that I might just remember that!

Tanganyika Dreaming is a journey through an adventurous period of life that leaves you little option but to hold your breath and see what happens until the very last page. The author paints vivid pictures that pull you inside the story and he almost has you “watching” every scene, whether it be a drive through a genocide or an encounter of a more intimate nature. The story has all the elements that one might expect: history, war, international aid and its contradictions and failures, adventure, love, sex, money, but where the true, real protagonist of the story is Africa and its powerful nature and environment. The writing style is direct and brutally honest, sometimes naïve but genuine all the same, and somehow full of love, totally inspired.
