Drink the Bitter Root is a provocative and emotionally charged account of one writer's travels in sub-Saharan Africa. Haunted by the 1993 murder of a Somali teenager by Canadian soldiers in what became known as the Somalia affair, and long fascinated by the so-called "dark continent," Gary Geddes decides at the age of sixty-eight to make the trip. His explorations are guided by questions. How can a tribunal in a remote suburb of Europe possibly change things on the ground in Africa? Are international aid and intervention improving the lives of ordinary Africans or contributing to their suffering?The stories Geddes brings back are haunting, uplifting, terrifying, stark, sometimes almost unbearable. Drink the Bitter Root is a masterful blend of history, reportage, testimonial and memoir, is a harsh condemnation of the horrors spawned by greed and corruption and an eloquent tribute to human resilience.
