Publisher's Summary

In East Africa on the eve of independence three cultures - African, Asian and European - vie for control of the emerging countries. A group of young American teachers arrive, full of idealism and a sense of adventure. In this exotic atmosphere they find career satisfaction, lifelong friendships, romance, and heartache. They change Africa, but Africa changes them more.

    "A Most Pleasant Story..."

    As one who listens to audiobooks and podcasts when using the treadmill, I generally don't pay that much attention to what I am hearing. However, East African Odyssey drew me in from the start, so much so that I actually found myself looking forward to my next treadmill session so I could continue listening to this delightful story of love and adventure. What a remarkable period of time this woman spent exploring East Africa in the early 60s. I did detect a few mispronounced words by the narrator such as "papris" for papyrus and "wild beast" for wildebeest, but the overall narration was a nicely paced and enjoyable representation of Ms. Hines written work. I found myself actually envious of this woman's daring personality and in awe of her acumen. She is quite intriguing. I did find myself feeling a bit sorry for Surgit (I hope I have the spelling correct), who probably had modest romantic designs on Ms. Hines, and Rico who most definitely was in love with her, but couldn't handle his jealousy. But, hey, that's life! I probably would have liked to know a bit more about Ray, but new listeners can explore that aspect of the audiobook themselves. All in all, East African Oddysey: Love and Adventure in the Africa of the 1960s was a most enjoyable experience.
