About the Author
The author, Paul J. Stam, was born in the northeast corner of the Belgian Congo where he grew up listening to the accounts of the old timers some of whom were the first whites in that part of Africa. Just before the end of World War II, when he was 15, Paul came to the United States with his parent. After graduating from high school he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving aboard a destroyer during the Korean War. His tour of duty completed, Paul attended the University of Minnesota and later joined the staff. Among other things Paul has been a foundry worker, salesman, university teacher and administrator and sailboat skipper. Paul is now retired and lives in Hawaii. Paul is also the author of A River That Is Congo: Of Rulers and Ruled published by All Things That Matter Press and available as a Kindle, Nook and audiobook.

The pattern of occasionally alternating stories of the two cultures provides readers with the simultaneous events that take place, which are most helpful. We become immersed in what is going on, as the characters become real to us. This is a fine account of a time many of us know little about, and told tightly and clearly. Excellent read. I would recommend reading these books in chronological order, making this the second in the series of the Congo novels.
