KIRKUS REVIEW

An entertaining account, well written and beautifully illustrated with photographs, of a summer vacation among native tribes of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. Experiences en route by air from England to Khartoum, by boat and motor from tribe to tribes troubles with models for painting; mishaps in photography; native and white modes of life, etc. An artist's eye and a keen sense of humor give this a somewhat different angle comparable to Peter Fleming's lighthearted armchair travel. Some ultra-convervatives might consider it ""frank"".
