Cameroon with Egbert

Cameroon with Egbert

by Dervla Murphy (Author)


This is an account of a trip which the author took with her daughter and their horse named Egbert to the remote West African country of Cameroon, little known apart from being the shelter of six million refugees from Chad. The book recounts their travels though grassland, dense jungle and the high mountain country. It relates how they found themselves by accident among the nightmare horrors and wreckage of the poisoned volcanic Nyos, where they were arrested. One of their anxieties was the mysterious disappearance of their beloved Egbert, but as ever the Murphys made friends among the people whose paths they crossed and found much human kindness in unlikely places.
