This seemed a little slow and wondering to me Usually that's okay in a travel book but somehow this writer never seemed to resolve ANYTHING which got a little boring after a while Perhaps I was influenced by having read Kingsley's wonderfully witty narrative first

I haven't read Kingsley's book but admire Alexander's planning in following the literary trail she left behind Still if you're expecting historical footsteps as the primary focus here it doesn't uite work that way Roughly half of the book is a modern travel narrative having little or nothing to do with Kingsley which was fine by me but that writer's fans may find the footsteps angle a bit thin Also Alexander spends a fair amount of time on a side story of a missionary physician whom Kingsley had met on her journey Overall a pleasant read where not much really happens of note no wildly challenging monkey wrenches typical of other African adventures she goes places some Kingsley related others not meets people reports what she finds and moves on to the next location Lecat's narration came across as a bit patrician and seems a bit mature than I'd expected of Alexander herself giving the story the air of a Womens' Institute talk from local gentry; however as there aren't really any truly dramatic moments that wasn't such a bad fit

To Be a Pilgrim He who would valiant be'Gainst all disasterLet him in constancyFollow the MasterThere's no discouragementShall make him once relentHis first avowed intentTo be a pilgrimEnglish hymn of 1906 based on John Bunyan's Pilgrim's ProgressWhat inspires us to make pilgrimages This is what was foremost in my mind as I read Caroline Alexander's lyrical travel memoir Alexander follows ostensibly in the footsteps of famed African explorer Mary Kingsley but along the way her fellow travelers separated by decades and centuries also include the Italian French explorer Pietro Savorgnan di Brazzà Albert Schweitzer Dr Robert Hamil Nassau founder of the Talagouga mission in Gabon Paul B du Chaillu and Trader Horn She immersed herself in the literature of the explorers and missionaries of the region yet to her credit her research never overwhelms her account Alexander is acutely aware of the futility of replicating Kingsley's journey but she persists motivated by well this is the uestion really The motivations of pilgrims are complex We cannot recreate the original journey and are bound to be disappointed in any deviations or differences from it yet the pilgrim follows the Master in Alexander's case this is Kingsley as a way to pay homage to an admired predecessor but also as a route to self discovery The demon the Alexander wrestles with most freuently is a fear of being a mere tourist of being an unworthy successor to the pioneering spirit that was Mary Kingsley At one point while visiting a primate research station she reflects I was revisited with the uneasy sensation of being merely a tourist I suddenly felt vague and insubstantial Once again I seemed to be skimming over the surface of someone else’s deeper experience”And yet Alexander does far than skim She renders vivid descriptions of the people she meets and the landscapes she traverses In one particularly poignant passage she visits an abandoned mission and enters its ruined cathedral I approached the cathedral whose heavy double doors surmounted with great bosses stood closed with an air of finality as if they had been sealed shut irrevocably and forever; yet they swung easily open when I pushed them I stepped into the cavernous cathedral nave which stripped bare as it was of all pews and of every scrap of decoration resembled a medieval dining hall than it did a church Dangling eerily on its broken chain above the choir loft was what appeared to be but surely could not have been a censer spotlit by the weak light that entered through the large porthole windows immediately behind it All along the high side walls the jungle had come peering in each window groping with its sinuous tendrils into this private darkness and leaf by leaf consigning it to a forgotten secrecy like that enshrouding Sleeping Beauty’s palace Impossible to describe the feeling of desolation harbored in this grandiose and gutted structure standing at the end of the long line of successive abandonments that I had wandered through that dayIn another tell tale passage she comes to grips with her self perceived inadeuacy in comparison to Mary Kingsley What would Mary Kingsley have done at Onga Would she have inuired as to how the chief’s wife had prepared the manioc Investigated the nature of the spirits that almost certainly haunt the Djoué river I had none of her inuiring anthropological passion Are Bateké women allowed to eat antelope Do they rejoice or despair at the birth of twins I would not know what to do with such knowledge In fact I did very little inuiring at Onga but found myself being absorbed passively into its rhythm of lifeAh but there's the rub There's much to be gained by this passive absorption haphazard as it may seem For one thing it gave her a useful perspective as she makes friends and the occasional enemy along her way the Sisters at the mission in Lambaréné the faithful boatman Jean even the overbearing chief of Four Place They are portrayed with a fond and detailed vividness that makes Alexander's paucity of fresh ideas seem irrelevant Mary Kingsley of course set high marks for than industry and insight Her humor and wry appraisal of the difficulties she faced are what draw many of us to her narrative Caroline Alexander however has her own sense of humor less acerbic and marked but right on target There is for example the account of the comically mismanaged Hotel Cascades in Booué My room was filthy with grimy green walls ancient wasps’ nests tattered curtains and a powerful smell of mildew This I soon discovered was the very least of difficulties a guest faced at the Hotel Cascades which was a kind of Gabonese Fawlty Towers a masterpiece of awfulness a monument of chaotic madness of such colossal and magnificent proportions that after prolonged experience anger subsided into a kind of awestruck admirationBut it is while confronting the passage of time and coming to grips with her own moods and feelings that I was most drawn to Alexander's account Time and again she makes a trek to a now abandoned church or takes in a view eulogized by Kingsley only to find something uite different and to despair at a lack of resonance I had embarked on this abbreviated version of Kingsley’s trip to a church outside Libreville with the awareness that the most I could expect was to see the same scenery as had Kingsley but that I would have no approximation of her experience Still this was my last trip within Gabon – in two days’ time I would be back in Europe – and I now realized that I had after all looked forward to some kind of emotional climax Standing in the entrance of the blackened church I tried to imagine Mary Kingsley climbing up to the verandah being offered wine and bread by the friendly isolated priests – but try as I did I could make no connection; there was nothing evocative on this scorched and desecrated site where even the view of the sea and western horizon was obscured by the overgrowth of grass But what bravery there is in this confession She was like all good pilgrims looking for something that cannot be found The successful pilgrim comes to value what is found in its place Discussed this book along with Kingsley's Travels in West Africa in a Reading Genres book club meeting in June 2017 devoted to the theme A Love Story With a Twist my take being that Kingsley was in love with Africa
