Africa, My Passion
In a compelling personal pilgrimage, Corinne Hofmann, author of the global bestseller The White Masai, delves into the slums of Nairobi to uncover the heart-warming and heart-breaking stories of unforgettable people and places, then treks 500 miles across the Namibian desert to discover the lives of the nomadic Himba people. She travels to Nairobi, joined by her half-Kenyan daughter, Napirai, for the first time, to discover Napirai’s roots and so that her daughter might finally meet her father and half-siblings in Barsaloi. Africa, My Passion is a poignant, touching and exciting story about one woman’s love affair with a unique man, which led to a lifelong obsession with Africa. Moving, vividly recounted, eye-opening and, above all, filled with passionate hope and unparalleled detail, this is an extraordinary continuation of a bestselling series of memoirs.
