Out of Darkness, Shining Light

List price: $12.21

Available: 6

This is the story of the body of Bwana Daudi, the Doctor, the explorer David Livingstone - and the sixty-nine men and women who carried his remains for 1,500 miles across the African interior so that he could be borne across the sea and buried in his own country.

This is the story of those in the shadows of history: the dark companions who saved a white man's bones on an epic funeral march - little knowing his corpse carried the maps that sowed the seeds of their continent's colonisation and enslavement.

This is the story of how human bravery, loyalty, and love can triumph over darkness - and the result is Petina Gappah's radical masterpiece.
