INTO THE HOUSE OF THE ANCESTORS

""Rich . . . fascinating."" --The New York Times Book Review

""A master of eyewitness description and of the telling interview, [Maier] has unearthed Africa's hidden heroes and heroines."" --Financial Times

""Maier has written a sensitive and complex narrative. . . . excellent descriptions of the lives and experiences of both ordinary and extraordinary individuals in different parts of Africa."" --Richard Leakey, The Times (London)

""A remarkable book. . . . It is no easy task to articulate an intangible undercurrent in an area so geographically large and culturally diverse, but Maier has succeeded admirably. Maier gives us hope that [the Africans] can rebound and even thrive. Highly recommended."" --Library Journal
Format: Hardcover
