'Mr. Johnson has had many strange and interesting experiences and he knows how to describe them in plain, vigorous English. At the same time he throws a flood of light on the nature of British rule' .. The Daily Mail.

Johnson was a missionary who worked for 5 years in the kingdom of Toro on the African Equator. He writes with warmth and lucidity of the customs, religious ideas, and projections for the future development of Central Africa. 'The story of these rambles about the great mountain range of Central Africa cannot fail to foster interest in this distant outpost of the Empire' T. Buxton from the introduction.
