African Silences


In “African Silences”, the author, Peter Matthiessen, writes of the first visit he made to West Africa in 1978, accompanying primateologist, Gilbert Boese, on a wildlife survey to┬áSenegal, Gambia, and the Ivory Coast. He continued eastward to Zaire in search of the rare Congo peacock. In early 1986 he returned, this time to Central Africa with ecologist David Western, who was attempting to determine the status of the small forest elephant in the Congo basin. A must for the collecters of wild-life material
