Quote from the book "Road of Ash and Dust: Awakening of a Soul in Africa."
Road of Ash and Dust: Awakening of a Soul in Africa
by E.L. Cyrs
Unaware that hunger, sickness and deprivation were awaiting him, a young idealist leaves the United States and embarks on a spiritual journey to West Africa. Repeatedly challenged by a world beyond his understanding and thrown into harsh, critical self-reflections, he is repulsed by the image of himself that Africa forces him to confront.
