Henri lived only a few short years in Europe before the family moved to the Belgian Congo, a country deep in the heart of Africa. These were the early 1900s at a time when the colonial era was in full swing. The White Man ruled the native population with undisputed authority and many parts of the country were totally uncivilized. Henri adapted easily to his new surroundings and the memoir chronicles his unique experiences with surprising verve and stirring prose. The listener's imagination will be gripped by the account of witchcraft, superstition, strange rites, exotic animals, and life in a remote post.
