Dust From Our Eyes is a marvelous combination of hard-hitting, well-documented reporting and personal, emotional encounters with unforgettable African people. One leaves this remarkable book sharing Joan Baxter's feeling that Africa has much to teach us in the West and its people continue to share a kind of richness beyond the measureable, financial kind we in the West recognize. One also leaves it knowing Africa has a true friend in Joan Baxter.
If you want to get educated about Africa and understand why in spite of all the minerals and oil people still live in financially miserable condition, and why in spite of materially harsh condition people are joyful and happy to live, this is the book for you.
