Peter Godwin has eloquently expressed his own connection to Africa. His words echo my own feelings. To me, Africa is "the mother continent. Perhaps that certain quality of the light stirs some primordial homesickness, some special resonance. This is, after all, the crucible of the human species. This is home." -- Peter Godwin in the introduction to "Wild at Heart:Man and Beast in Southern Africa." Another Peter Godwin quote: "There’s something about the quality of the light, the vegetation, and the wildlife itself that strikes an ancient, pre-racial, homogenetic chord. That we are all African at heart."
