In this collection of stories set in Africa, he describes how those who do not belong, suffer-and then want to return to the Dark Continent again.His tales recall a calm village man whose best time in life was the Biafra war, two young Americans who hitchhike to Lake Baringo in Kenya, and a Peace Corps volunteer who disappears in the deadly Niger River delta.

He also tells of a young businessman from Baltimore who is in love with an Igbo girl-and who encounters a prostitute in an unusual circumstance while on a business trip in Lagos. In another tale, a Californian professor with malformed feet travels to a deep jungle to learn how to construct orthopedic shoes, which change his life. Finally, three adventurers, kidnapped by ruthless robbers, get help from a French secret agent and a dose of luck.Life in Africa can be grim and disturbing, but theres also humor, humanity, and lots of adventure in the Four Thorns of Kilimanjaro.
