|Number of pages:||196|
This autobiography covers a period of eleven years of work and exciting experiences in Burundi as well as those that characterized subsequent visits made to this country. It also describes the adventures that have marked the two trips made in East Africa during this eleven-year period at a time when travel to these distant African countries were not sanitized and provided thrilling challenges. These adventures cover the implementation of the first tea plantation of 1,250 acres in Burundi in the province of Muramvya near the Kibiru forest and the management of an experimental agronomic research plan in the plain of Imbo. They also include one of the rare witnessing of the terrible atrocities committed during the coup d'état of 1972.
