"Engrossing, beautiful, and deeply imaginative" (Yaa Gyasi, author of Homegoing ), this epic novel about the explorer David Livingstone and the extraordinary group of Africans who carry his body across impossible terrain "illuminates the agonies of colonialism and blind loyalty" ( O, The Oprah Magazine ). " This is how we carried out of Africa the poor broken body of...David Livingstone, so that he could be borne across the sea and buried in his own land. " So begins Petina Gappah's "searing...poignant" ( Star-Tribune , Minneapolis) novel of exploration and adventure in nineteenth-century Africa--the captivating story of the African men and women who carried explorer and missionary Dr. Livingstone's body, his papers and maps, fifteen hundred miles across the continent of Africa, so his remains could be returned home to England and his work preserved there. Narrated by Halima, the doctor's sharp-tongued cook, and Jacob Wainwright, his rigidly pious secretary, this is a "powerful novel, beautifully told" (Jesmyn Ward, author of Sing, Unburied, Sing ) that encompasses all of the hypocrisy of slavery and colonization--the hypocrisy of humanity--while celebrating resilience, loyalty, and love.
