  1. Curtiss Curtiss says:

    This amounts to a travelogue of Burton's journey to the coast of West Africa with stops at Madiera Teneriff and Sierra Leone along the way before his final arrival at the Ivory Coast Detailed but rather dry descriptions of everything that interested him and practically everything did

  2. Tony Tony says:

    Like another reviewer said it's a somewhat dry account with many over detailed descriptions of buildings Capes forests etcbut still an easy enough read The author was a bit bored in Tenerife because there wasn't much going onThings have changed somewhat since then

  3. Stephanie Griffin Stephanie Griffin says:

    15 stars Absolutely the most self centered author I have ever come across He likes nothing Everything is sub par I couldn't read the whole book It's too bad because this could have been a great catalog of the way Africa was in the 1860's
