The Black Nile
by Dan Morrison
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 320 PAGES
Inspired by Alan Moorehead's classic river chronicles The Blue Nile and The White Nile, foreign correspondent Morrison bought a plank-board boat and set out from Uganda, paddling the Nile across Sudan toward Cairo with a childhood friend who'd never been off American soil in tow. The result is a portrait, sometimes funny and sometimes frightening, of a region in the midst of profound transition.
