“This is a true page-turner with two alternating stories of misfit Americans in Africa. The first is a gifted young scientist sent by a pharmaceutical corporation to find a specific plant that will be made into a wonder drug. The second is a young man sent to build the railroad that will make the colonization of this part of Africa by the West possible. The young woman will learn the lives of mountain gorillas; the young man will be forced to hunt man-eating lions. All of this and the writing is excellent, as well.”—Andy, The Literary Duck, Eugene.
