This is a fascinating portrait of the Sudan 50 years ago during the last days of the British Empire. The author, first a senior lecturer and later a provincial educational officer, traveled widely in her work. With her husband, she mixed professionally and socially with sheiks and local politicians, British officials from the Governor-General down, and with Sudanese of all walks of life. Her affect for the African nation and its people shines through in this chronicle. Foreword by James Callaghan.
