"Book recounts the day-to-day events of a trip which took place in 1932 when two intrepid young women successfully undertook the then rare and seldom attempted journey from one end of Africa to the other. The trip lasted almost 6 months and encompassed over 14,000 miles. It is illustrated with many of the photographs taken during the trip bringing to life the manners, customs, culture, traditions and conventions of a still-predominantly colonial Africa that has now disappeared into the irretrievable past."
