Travels in West Africa

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (7 votes)

Mary Kingsley went alone, in 1893, to remote areas in West Africa crawling with cannibal tribes. Some areas had never been visited by a white man, much less a white woman. She's at her best when writing in travel journal style. The rest of the book that is not travel narrative is her thoughts and research on Africa and its "fetishes", which is what seems to be her word for the religious and traditional customs of the natives.
