520    In Africa's Forest and Jungle is the memoir of Richard 
       Henry Stone, a Civil War era Southern Baptist missionary, 
       who served in what is now Nigeria during the late 1850s 
       and again during the first years of the American Civil 
       War. Stone published this work in 1899, when it became 
       clear that age would prevent him from returning to Africa.
       Stone served in Africa with his wife and successfully 
       learned the Yoruba language. He was an intelligent, self-
       reflective, and reliable observer, making his works 
       important sources of information on Yoruba society before 
       the intervention of European colonialism. In Africa's 
       Forest and Jungle is a rare account of West African 
       culture, made all the more complete by the additional 
       journal entries, letters, and photographs collected in 
       this edition
