Alan Embarks On A Treacherous Journey Up The Slopes Of Mount Kilimanjaro, Following The Song Of The Leopard, Which Is Also Pulling His Suddenly Aloof Friend, Kimathi, To The Upper Peaks And To A Meeting That Will Forever Change Both Of Their Lives An Engrossing Story Booklist. This book is a thrilling and chilling tale It takes place in Kenya, in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro Tribal legend clashes starkly with 20th century beliefs It shows how the coming of the white man to Africa has changed the face of Africa, by bringing Western beliefs to the continent which clash with the traditional beliefs The ending is sad and portrays how so much has changed over the years in African culture I would have given this book 5 stars, but the epilogue was extremely short and somewhat emotion
A fun book for children, exploring the differences between the British views of colonized Africa and the indigenous people A magical journey up Mount Kilimanjaro which is drenched in very serious coming of age overtones Ultimately the book is quite a simple read and uses lots of colourful imagery However the content display
this book left me deeply, deeply dissatified and sick Is the life of one white boy worth the lives of a full African tribe This was my favorite Campbell book Really fun and magical.
