Cloth; Used. Fine. Dust Jacket: Fine. African Silences by Peter Matthiessen. First Edition/First Printing. Travel Literature.


"Peter Matthiessen has made a reputation as a brilliant novelist as well as a renowned naturalist writer. In AFRICAN SILENCES, he chronicles his expeditions in 1978 and 1986 through western and central Africa. On his 1978 journey, Matthiessen accompanied primatologist Gilbert Boese through Senegal, Gambia, and the Ivory Coast. Matthiessen perceptively surveys how the wildlife of these regions struggle to survive against overwhelming odds. After leaving the Ivory Coast, he continued on to Zaire, where he searched for the rare Congo peacock. While primarily concerned with the natural world, Matthiessen cannot resist the urge to comment on how brutal the governments of these various countries are."
