Once Upon the Congo is the story of expeditions to a remote diamond quarry first located by Henry Stanley's 1887 trip through the Congo, and the lives, loves and deaths of those who took part in a great African adventure. So remote and dangerous is the site of the mine, expeditions are limited to one in 1966 and another in 2010. A tale of adventure, danger and romance that evokes memories of such great stories as King Solomon Mines and the tales of great white hunters in Africa. The expeditions face angry pygmies who poison the tips of their arrows, unwelcoming wild animals, an unforgiving river and rebel insurgents who are determined to take away any diamonds they might find. Torrid romances and a vein of humor keep the pages turning in this adult novel that blends well researched history and exciting fiction.
