This book recounts a year that Maya Angelou spent in Ghana, West Africa, attempting to re-connect with her African roots and parallel these with her own African-American experience. Her descriptions of Ghana's markets and peoples is fairly accurate and her candor about her own struggles and expectations is helpful. For a person wanting to learn more about and/or travel to Ghana or an adjoining West African nation, this is a helpful introduction which, through descriptive language, transports the reader to a new land with new experiences.

Book 5 of the five volumnes of autobiography written so well and so touchingly by amazing Maya Angelou.

"Told with the humorous, unsentimental wisdom that has gained Maya Angelou such a devoted following"--Sunday Times

"As a black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope and joy, achievement and celebration."

We can all learn something from this very compelling series of books!
