Yvonne Blackwood

Author Yvonne Blackwoodabout this book: Into Africa, The Return is a memoir about Blackwood's second journey to West Africa. Unlike her first journey to the continent of Africa where she travelled alone, this time she is accompanied by two American cousins. The book offers great insight into the sights and sounds of West Africa, especially to readers who have never visited the continent. In one review from Reader Views, Olivera Baumgartner writes, "I found parts describing Africa's sights sounds, smells and tastes truly delightful. They were colorful, entertaining and made me want to jump in the middle of each of these scenes."

The book delves into parts of the West African culture that one does not usually experience; the cousins see first hand how death is celebrated and the behaviours of relatives on such an occasion.

Blackwood was inspired to write this book based on the overwhelming response by readers to Into Africa A Personal Journey, the book about her first West African journey; readers wanted more. The moment Blackwood saw the cover picture she knew it was perfect; it depicts the strength of the African woman, the silent matriarch and sustainer of the community.
