"In Africa's Forest and Jungle" is the memoir of Richard Henry Stone, a Civil War era Southern Baptist missionary, who served in what is now Nigeria during the late 1850s and again during the first years of the American Civil War. Stone published this work in 1899, when it became clear that age would prevent him from returning to Africa. Stone served in Africa with his wife and children, and successfully learned the Yoruba language. He was an intelligent, self-reflective, and reliable observer, making his works important sources of information on Yoruba society before the intervention of European colonialism. "In Africa's Forest and Jungle" is a rare account of West African culture, made all the more complete by the additional journal entries, letters, and photographs collected in this edition.
