The Iron Snake
by John Gaudet
It's 1897, a period marred by unrest in colonial Africa. Back in Britain, stories abound about the wild nature of the African railroad line. The tabloid term, 'Lunatic Express,' seems to fit. Join the spirited Alice McConnell, the Honorable Geoffrey Stanford and a host of fascinating characters as they witness Africa's first steps into the modern era and the transformation of their own lives.
