520    "'This is how we carried out of Africa the poor broken 
       body of Bwana Daudi, the Doctor, David Livingstone, so 
       that he could be borne across the sea and buried in his 
       own land.' So begins Petina Gappah's powerful novel of 
       exploration and adventure in nineteenth-century Africa--
       the captivating story of the loyal men and women who 
       carried explorer and missionary Dr. Livingstone's body, 
       his papers and maps, fifteen hundred miles across the 
       continent of Africa, so his remains could be returned home
       to England and his work preserved there. Narrated by 
       Halima, the doctor's sharp-tongued cook, and Jacob 
       Wainwright, a rigidly pious freed slave, this is a story 
       that encompasses all of the hypocrisy of slavery and 
       colonization--the hypocrisy at the core of the human heart
       --while celebrating resilience, loyalty, and love."--
