Description

Now in its 7th printing: A woman, travelling alone through time, Africa, and unnamed lands, searches for Dr. David Livingstone, celebrated by the West as a "discoverer" of Africa. Looking for Livingstone explodes Western assumptions about the "silence" of indigenous peoples; this is an elegant work which beautifully gives voice to the ancestors to whom it is dedicated.
