This book recounts a year that Maya Angelou spent in Ghana, West Africa, attempting to re-connect with her African roots and parallel these with her own African-American experience. Her descriptions of Ghana's markets and peoples is fairly accurate and her candor about her own struggles and expectations is helpful. For a person wanting to learn more about and/or travel to Ghana or an adjoining West African nation, this is a helpful introduction which, through descriptive language, transports the reader to a new land with new experiences.
Maya Angelou writes so beautifully. Her books are a treat. This one is particularly compelling.
Very entertaining and makes one think.
This was my first book to read of Maya Angelou, and
I will definatly be reading the rest of her written
I adore Maya Angelou's writings and this is another great one!
