Summary
"This book was written to answer the many people who have asked the author, "What was it like to grow up in Africa?" Scattered throughout the text, there are stories - some scary, some sad, some happy, and some frightening - about "home" from different perspectives, long before the Congo became independent in 1960." "Sarah McKee Burnside was born in 1930 at Bibanga, a mission station in what was then the Belgian Congo. Being surrounded by Congolese natives was for her the most natural way to grow up. When she was eleven and a half, the McKees headed for Arkansas and the United States and never returned to the Congo."--BOOK JACKET
