Feeling the need to "reorient his inner compass", filmmaker Kevin Kertscher set out on a personal journey across large expanses of the African continent. With only the gear that would fit into his backpack he hitchhiked, walked, and took local buses and riverboats through vast and varied terrain, from the sand dunes surrounding Timbuktu to the woodland home of Zaire's elusive mountain gorillas. Kertscher here recounts this improbable journey, sharing the memorable characters (both African and the reflections and insights solitary travel brings.
