I saw this title in my goodreads feed because a goodsreads-only acquaintance added it her to-read list without commentary. I immediately requested it from the library. Most of the books I read before my trip were about climbing Kilimanjaro and wasted my time, and then I tried a book Rich was reading that, he claimed, was about Africa. I started it but I couldn't get past the author's justification for hunting. This, in contrast, is gorgeous. The prose is lovely, the landscape and peoples he describes are lovely, and it's 40 years old so there were more elephants. He met a few people who knew Bror von Blixen and Dennis Finch-Hatton; he camped under the stars; he didn't kill a buffalo. More like this, please.
Review: The Tree Where Man Was Born (The African Trilogy #1)User Review - Goodreads
Anthropologist, immersion type travel writer Peter Matthiessen lucidly and sharply describes East African landscape, culture and ethnography. Though written in the late 60s his observations remain pertinent.
