FROM AFRICA, WITH LOVE
Cynthia Borris, commenting on
U.S.A Today(6/22/2004) on How FROM AFRICA, WITH LOVE came about.
Herman writes: "One evening my wife to be, literally dragged me to attend a TOASTMASTERS meeting as a guest. She assured me that I would not be called upon to make an impromptu speech at the podium in front of the distinguished members of this elite club. Under those circumstances, I agreed to go. Little did I know that the idea to write a concise account of my life would be born in a small meeting room full of strangers. One of the distinguished gentlemen - 50'ish in age, introduced himself as a "Retired Navy", and went on to give an account of his travels through the Cape of Good Hope all the way to the horn of Africa, and on to the Mediteranean. I thought his presentation was interesting but limited as far as the depts of African culture. I suddenly realised that I was overflowing with information regarding some African miths. Thus, the idea of my book: FROM AFRICA, WITH LOVE, was born.

By Roma D on January 28, 2005
Format: Paperback
An extensive set of ruminations on his journey from Cameroon to the United States of America. The kid from Cameroon tells all that needs to be said about love, loss and separation, about `why the tortoise's back is cracked, why snakes feel slippery, and why snakes' saliva is poisonous.'

Herman Yenwo explains the meanings of customs around the family, cultural, religious, and about the nature of goodness and simplicity. He uses the meanings of images, his experience of love and bond with his family and friends. In short, a summary of meanings of reciprocity in a relationship, and what it means to sustain bonds of trust and commitment.

He writes exactly as he talks, `extremely funny, must read it.'
