Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for CHASING THE DEVIL by Tim Butcher.

"Engaging...descriptions of walking through the bush, of sweltering heat, sweat and swelling blisters are juxtaposed against moments of beauty...a test of endurance."
- Sunday Telegraph (UK)

"A brave book by a writer of skill and principle... He exposes the toxic cocktail of colonial exploitation, tribal conflict, ritual violence and blood diamonds that spits out regional monstrosities such as Charles Taylor... an admirable book."
- Sunday Times (UK)

"Tim Butcher has a respect and affection for West Africa that is genuine and touching, writing in a way that brings out the exuberance and wit of its people. This book is required reading for anyone even vaguely interested in this remote and enigmatic region" Daily Mail "Butcher is really a Victorian explorer and writer endowed with the sterling grit of that age... He is tough and he's honest."
- Evening Standard (UK)

"Packed with incident... fascinating, harrowing and eventful."
- The Independent (UK) review:

“For many years war made Sierra Leone and Liberia too dangerous for outsiders to travel through. Tim Butcher heads into this combat zone, encountering the devastation wrought by lawless militia, child soldiers, brutal violence, blood diamonds and masked figures who guard the secrets of remote jungle communities. Butcher treks for 350 blistering miles through rainforest and malarial swamps to gain an extraordinary ground-level view of an overlooked region on the cusp of a remarkable recovery."
