This is a great real-life adventure story of a British government worker/missionary in 1940s/1950s Sudan. Remarkably written. ( )

Biographies are always of interest; this one fills the bill. The beginning is a bit slow, and I can imagine some people thinking there isn't quite enough drama involved in this man's life, it's a great story of a man who went to Sudan in the 1930s to "serve God and country." He served as a missionary, served as a leader in Sudan's Defense Force during World War II, and served as a District Commissioner thereafter. He and his family came to know the Sudanese people and their culture well - they do not fit the stereotype of colonists who came in to change the local culture. There are parts of the book that could have been a bit more smoothly written, but overall this is a good read. ( )
