He wanted to honor his ancestors. Unaware that hunger, sickness, and deprivation were awaiting him, a young idealist departs the United States and embarks on a spiritual quest to West Africa. Repeatedly challenged by a world beyond his understanding and thrown into harsh, critical self-reflections, he is repulsed by the image of himself that Africa forces him to confront.
Road of Ash and Dust: The Awakening of a Soul in Africa is a deeply intimate, unique, and voyeuristic unveiling of aspects of the African-American experience rarely committed to print. It allows you access to one of the most universal of journeys, a discovery of self.
Author E.L. Cyrs channels voices from a distant and muted past, guiding us into understanding that many of the answers to our most troubling questions do, truly, come from within.
