If you're interested in travel, adventure, rain forests, a bit of history and a great little country in South America this book is for you. Having spent my childhood in Suriname and then returning later in life, I was interested in how "an outsider" might view it. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned from him about my own country!! Westoll's account is interspersed with historical details and amusing anecdotes... and really keeps the reader turning pages. I've since passed this book on to several members in my family and it's being fought over. I'm back to buy more for them all!!
