The Niger and the West Sudan - p.2

Here the author quotes from another writer, who paints an exotic picture of West Africa. The region, he writes, 'is enchanted, it weaves a spell over the minds of men and, syren like, first attracts and then enslaves them.'

About The Niger and the West Sudan

 

'The Niger and the West Sudan, or the West African's Note Book' was first published in 1910. It aimed to provide those new to West Africa with 'hints and suggestions as to what is required by Britons' in the region. The book includes historical and anthropological notes, information on living conditions, and Hausa phrases used in everyday conversation.
