BOOK DESCRIPTION: "This is how we carried out of Africa the poor broken body of Bwana Daudi, the Doctor, David Livingstone, so that he could be borne across the sea and buried in his own land.” So begins Petina Gappah's powerful novel of adventure in nineteenth-century Africa—the captivating story of the loyal men and women who carried explorer and missionary Dr. Livingstone's body, his papers and maps, 1500 miles across the continent of Africa, so his remains could be returned home to England. Narrated by Halima, the doctor's sharp-tongued cook, and Jacob Wainwright, a pious freed slave, this story encompasses the hypocrisy of slavery and colonization—while celebrating resilience and love.
