“Why did I come to Africa?” thought I. Why! Who would not come to its twin brother Hell itself  for all the beauty and charm of it.” 
Mary Kingsley 
Travels in West Africa, 1897

In the winter of his 39th year, Robert Cherry,
a journalist and author of the acclaimed biography of an American sports legend
(Wilt Chamberlain), made a return visit to Africa.
His destination was the village in the Liberian rain forest where, fourteen years before, he had served as a Peace Corps Volunteer—the first American to live there. The result is Living Liberia
which introduces the reader to a charming, exotic and unforgettable land.
