Opis: Chasing the Devil - Tim Butcher

For many years war made Sierra Leone and Liberia too dangerous for outsiders to travel through. Facing down demons from his time in Africa as a journalist, Tim Butcher heads deep into this combat zone, encountering the devastation wrought by lawless militia, child soldiers, brutal violence, blood diamonds and masked figures who guard the spiritual secrets of remote jungle communities. On an epic journey that demands courage, doggedness and sheer luck, Butcher treks for 350 blistering miles through rainforest and malarial swamps to gain an extraordinary ground-level view of an overlooked region on the cusp of a remarkable recovery. "Engaging...descriptions of walking through the bush, of sweltering heat, sweat and swelling blisters are juxtaposed against moments of beauty...a test of endurance" -- Aminatta Forna Sunday Telegraph "Butcher's book is packed with incident... fascinating, harrowing and eventful" -- Joan Smith Independent 20100927 "Butcher writes with candour and humour" -- Sam Kiley Scotsman "Tim Butcher would probably admit that he was born into the wrong era. He is really a Victorian explorer endowed with the sterling grit of that age, which has carried him across the Congo and now through West Africa's jungle heartland... Butcher writes with candour and humour." -- Sam Kiley Evening Standard "A brave book by a writer of skill and principle... he exposes the toxic cocktail of colonial exploitation, tribal conflict, ritual violence and blood diamonds that spits out regional monsrosities such as Charles Taylor... an admirable book." -- Brian Schofield Sunday Times
