About this product
- DescriptionAt the beginning of the 1950s, the interior of West and Central Africa was still known to most of the outside world a 'The White Man's Grave', and there were still large parts where its forests were primeval. But to Macintosh it was a dream come true when he found himself posted to the hot cloying humidity of those fabled lands for thirty years.
- Author BiographyDonald MacIntosh has lived a life far more interesting than most of us, travelling to far-flung places in his career as a forester, but it is as a storyteller that he makes his mark. Donald was born in 1927 on the Isle of Mull and moved to Galloway with his family in 1932, aged two. He is the eldest son of a Perthshire woodcutter and until the age of five, Donald only spoke Gaelic.
