Journey Without Maps by Graham Greene

WITH A FOREWORD BY TIM BUTCHER AND AN INTRODUCTION BY PAUL THEROUX In 1935 Graham Greene set off to discover Liberia, a remote and unfamiliar West African republic founded for released slaves. Crossing the red-clay terrain from Sierra Leone to the coast at Grand Bassa with a chain of porters, he came to know one of the few areas of Africa untouched by Western colonisation.

Journey Without Maps Reviews

"One of the best travel books this century" * Independent *
"No one who reads this book will question the value of Greene's experiment, or emerge unshaken by the penetration, the richness, the integrity of this moving record" * Guardian *
"His originality lay in his gifts as a traveller. He had the foreign ear and eye for the strangeness of ordinary life and its ordinary crises" -- V. S. Pritchett
"Journey Without Maps and The Lawless Roads reveal Greene's ravening spiritual hunger, a desperate need to touch rock bottom both within the self and in the humanly created world" * Times Higher Education Supplement *
