Description
Of all the anarchic and war-torn African nations, none is more forbidding than Liberia, a land that has nurtured child soldiers, a violent trade in "blood diamonds," and even ritual murder; Graham Greene, in search of extreme adventure, ventured through its dense jungles in 1935 to write the travel classic Journey Without Maps. Three-quarters of a century later, Tim Butcher—a former African correspondent for London's Daily Telegraph and the author of his own African interior journey, Blood River—decided to follow in Greene's footsteps, and in this "fascinating, harrowing, and eventful" sequel (Independent, London) he finds a path even more ominous and overgrown than in his predecessor's day.

"This adventurous book, in the footsteps of Graham Greene, in many ways goes deeper than Greene, and shows the enduring beauty and danger in Sierra Leone and Liberia."—Paul Theroux

"It is an inspirational account of humanity's wonderful spirit to survive and proof that, in Tim Butcher, Africa has a worthy chronicler."—Desmond Tutu
