The Forbidden Coast. The story of a journey to Rio de Oro


The Rio de Oro,a Spanish possession on the north-west coast of Africa,is not a particularly important area in a world preoccupied with either trade or strategy.But to an ardent Hispanophile like John Lodwick,it represented a goal made all the more desirable by the official barriers placed in his way.This is the absorbing story of how he finally reached the Rio de Oro,of what he saw and, above all,of the people he came to know.This really was a very strange part of the African continent.
