Journey without maps

£40.00

Product description

297 pp. Unmarked dark green boards with bright gilt title on spine. Tightly bound. Pages are crisp, clean and unmarked. This fascinating record of Greene's journey through Sierra Leone and Liberia is accompanied by black and white photographs. Small scuff marks to the back of dust jacket.

'It had seemed simple, before I set out, to write a travel book, but when I returned and was faced with my material, a diary written in pencil with increasing fatigue and running to less than eighty quarto pages of a loose-leaf notebook, the piece of paper on which i kept the accounts of my carriers' advances,a few illiterate notes from Mr Wordsworth, the District Commissioner of Tappee Ta, and from Colonel Elwood Davis, the Commander of the Liberian Frontier Force, some political literature from Monrovia, a selection of Liberian Newspapers, a few Buzie swords and musical instruments long lost ( they seemed so valuable then) , a number of photographs taken with an old vest=pocket Kodak, and memories-memories chiefly of rats, of frustration, and of a deeper boredom on the long forest trek than I had ever experienced before. How was I, out of all this, to make a book?' - From the author's introduction.
