  Nadine Gordimer is the doyenne of white African writers with her intensely-felt stories of disparate men,women & children from all walks of life in that deeply fractured,great-rifted prose lives & breathes,each story satisfyingly complete,in this wonderful collection from ,when South Africa,in particular,was at the fore-front of the wider political upheavals in post /5. “Livingstone’s Companions” is a somewhat indeterminate story, for it combines two tangential but still related plot interests: Carl Church and his fascination with the lake near the hotel. She catches equally well the public-school bitchery of an Anglo-African playboy or the subtle toadying undertone in a well-placed black's savoir-faire, but the main subjects of her scrutiny are ""Livingstone's Companions"" -- all those various whites who, like the weary British journalist of the title story, have in some metaphorical sense. : Livingstone's Companions (): Nadine Gordimer: Books.

  New York Times-bestselling author: Forgotten Realms enters a new era in this “insanely courageous, profoundly powerful, [and] masterfully constructed” fantasy adventure (Paul Goat Allen, ) A new installment in R.A. Salvatore's beloved saga, The Companions moves Salvatore's signature hero Drizzt into a new era of the Forgotten Realms/5(65).   “Into Africa” by Martin Dugard is a fantastic historical account of the exploration of this largely uncharted continent in the mid ’s. Dugard compels the reader to consider the many riveting accounts of bravery, persistence and man’s indomitable spirit exemplified by Dr. David Livingstone and Henry Morton Stanley/5. Susi, Chuma, and other African companions buried his heart at Chitambo’s village and then carried his mummified body to Dar es Salaam. It was brought back to Britain for a hero’s funeral in Westminster Abbey. For the next 50 years a large number of writers created their own Livingstones, most shaped to justify the “Scramble for Africa.”. David Livingstone became so deeply interested that, in the first place, he decided to give to missions all he could earn and save. The reading of the "Life of Henry Martyn" stirred his blood, and then came the appeals of a missionary from China, which thrilled the youth still more.
