Crossing the Heart of Africa by Julian Smith
The real "heart" in Smith's book is the love story that palpitates behind his cross-continent journey through the motherland. More than just a copycat of Ewart Grogan, who made the trek over a hundred years before, Julian Smith is an historian and an adventurer. This magical account reminds us that sometimes the farther we travel, the closer we come to home.
