is.gd/EkD4dl An adventure down the Nile through Uganda, Sudan, and Egypt.
Dan Morrison takes the reader on an incredible journey in The Black Nile. Weaving together intense travel writing and history, he has produced a supremely entertaining work, and also an important one. --David Grann, author of The Lost City of Z
From a “nomad who pursues every form of transportation imaginable to follow Africa’s longest river,” The Black Nile is “an evocative piece of reporting…a portrait of a fractured country just one spark away from a renewal of hostilities.” –Joshua Hammer, The New York Times Sunday Book Review
A masterful narrative of investigative reportage, travel writing, and contemporary history. -- The Daily Beast
Morrison’s experience as a journalist shines through, as does his use of humor, which frames subjects of utter horror…This is Morrison at his best, lean and hungry in wild wastelands of Africa’s Sahel. –Tahir Shah in The Washington Post
Four and a half stars. -- Steve Waters, Lonely Planet
This is hard-core African travel . . . [With] Mr. Morrison's peppery anecdotes, his refreshing honesty and his ability to show how Africans view their difficulties . . . the book gives us a compelling portrait of life along the Nile—from lonely fishing communities on Lake Victoria to the cacophonous collisions of Cairo. —Hugh Pope, The Wall Street Journal
Part On the Road, part Fear and Loathing in Africa, Dan Morrison takes us with him on his journey down the Nile--teaching us, by example, to be explorers of both the world and ourselves. --Kevin Sites, Author of In the Hot Zone: One Man, One Year, Twenty Wars
