There are only a handful of destinations left in the world that have retained their ability to surprise the traveller and Ethiopia is one of them. This book offers the reader an opportunity to discover or rediscover one of the most fascinating countries on the planet, through a kaleidoscopic variety of authors.  The only country in Africa never to be colonized, ithas an extraordinary history and at the centre of this rugged, landlocked country lies the cultural hub of Addis Ababa.  This book is the perfect companion to any exploration of Ethiopia, be it in the precarious saddle of an Abyssinian pony, or from the folds of an armchair. As well as peopling the land with its own caste of priest kings descended from Solomon and Sheba, Ethiopia has long attracted the attentions of eccentric adventurers, Jesuit explorers, foolish would-be conquerors, as well as saints and sinners in equal measure.
Including: Herodotus, Edward Gibbon, Philip Marsden, Strabo, Abba Gregorios, Arthur Rimbaud, Edgar Allan Poe, Coleridge, Dervla Murphy, Wilfred Thesiger among others.
