really liked it

Civilizations encroachment on native(and I do mean Native)peoples how ideas and changes have to evolve or force must be applied to make comfort zones disappear for those who are living in areas with home rules and small society rules which distance and forest helps hinder the encroachment of unwanted society (Big Mac)or National Goverment)Enlightment of how interior Africa is being challenged to face the never ending onrush of the big changes that are happening-no matter what-very penetrating,almost like you're sitting on the sidelines directing something that you don't want to see take place because you been there and done that-you want to warn and demand people act right but do to forces out of your control-you are left by the wayside one way or the other-dead or alive-no-one knows because the jungle has it's own way of encroaching
