African Embrace is a true story that reads like a novel. As a business and economic development consultant who assisted the Ghanaian government with major political policy, L. Dalton Casto lived through coups in the wake of the reign of Ghana's President Nkrumah. He narrowly escaped rampant looting and killing during the dictatorship of Uganda's Idi Amin (when 50,000 Asian-Indian entrepreneurs were stripped of their property and possessions, and given 90 days to flee the country).
