|The challenge was to train a security force for the Volta River Authority in Ghana. This account tells how Roy Bishop, ill prepared and poorly equipped, came to terms with this adventure, and how the people and the land affected him and gradually changed his knowledge of himself and life. The story illustrates the challenges, trials and amusing incidents throughout the author's stay in Ghana-situations or incidents which today, in the time of the mobile phone, could not have happened, but did in 1986. For those interested in Africa and the activity of private contract men working in this Dark Continent, the story will surely be fascinating. Magic Ju Ju, the poverty of the people, the savagery of some, the loyalty and the friendship of others, make up this collection of tales within the story. This was a lesson in life.|
