Dark Star Safari: Overland from Cairo to Cape Town by Paul Theroux
In Dark Star Safari, acclaimed travel writer Paul Theroux tells the story of his journey across the African continent. Observant and intensely curious, not only does his witness the poverty, disease, and corruption, but also the wide diversity of Africa. He interacts with both famous people and tribesmen, ventures where caution might be better advised, and assimilates himself into places rarely seen by big-game safaris or tourists. Africa is the "dark star," a different place from the rest of the world that still exerts an influence on it. The Minneapolis Star Tribune says of Dark Star Safari, "This is a masterwork by a master writer."
