Levison Wood's journey was 4,250 miles long, and he walked every step of the way, camping in the wild, foraging for food, and fending for himself against multiple dangers. He passed through rainforest, savannah, swamp, desert, and lush delta oases and crossed seven very different countries. No one had ever made this journey on foot. In this detailed, thoughtful, inspiring and dramatic book is recounted Levison Wood's walk the length of the Nile, during which he uncovered the history of the Nile. Through the people he met and who helped him with his journey, he came face to face with the great story of a modern Africa emerging out of the past. Exploration and Africa are two of Wood's great passions -- they drove him on and motivated his inquisitiveness and resolution not to fail. Yet the challenges that the terrain, the climate, the animals, the people and his own psychological resolution threw at him were immense.The dangers were very real, but so was the motivation for this ex-army officer.
