In these four pieces, this distinguished Danish writer, who lived in Africa for many years, recalls again the African land and people she knews so well. This volume includes "Farah" in which the storyteller describes a mistress-servant relationship "as picturesque as that of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza," "Baua A Soldani (Letter from a King)" in which is told the story of a letter that banishes all pain, "The Great Gesture" in which the storyteller shows how gnerosity triumphs over superstition, "Echoes From The Hills" in which recollections of the past crowd in upon the storyteller, now far away, when she hears news of her friends in Africa.
