A Pilgrimage in Search of Hope

Friedenberg, Daniel M.
March 1955
New Republic;3/7/55, Vol. 132 Issue 10, p15
The article focuses on the book "Cairo to Capetown," by Reginald Reynolds. The author Reynolds, after a sojourn of six months in Africa, has written a book explaining nine countries, 5,000 miles of territory and a multitude of races and institutions. Cairo to Capetown, "a pilgrimage in search of hope" as the author subtitles his study, joins the leaky spigot of books published in the last few years dealing with the problems of the Dark Continent. Cairo to Capetown is interesting because it brings to a head all the fuzzy-wuzzy values that a sincere person may register, while at the same time reflecting the image of a saintly man whose touch on the depths below logic may be more enduring than many of the limited intellectual pictures.
