SPARROWS OF SENEGAMBIA CHARLES SAMPSON, PHD

This memoir connects my birthplace, life, work, education, and travels to more than a dozen African countries on the continent; places in South America and states in the South, Mid- West, as well as travels to Europe, Southeast Asia, including Thailand, the Cambodian and Laotian borders, and Indonesia. My 2005 travel to Senegal was the beginning of my knowledge of Senegambia, a historical name for a geographical region in West Africa, now no longer recognized by that name. The flight of the sparrow allows it to rise above circumstances of reality, doom and dismay.
