"Robert H. Milligan comes home to America, after seven years' missionary work in West Africa, with a very good opinion of the African natives. He dissents from the view he has found presented in recently published books about he Dark Continent, that its people are physically ugly, mentally stupid, morally repulsive, and everlastingly uninteresting. In his book, entitled "The Jungle Folk of Africa,"...Mr. Milligan pictures the Africans he met as a very interesting people, constituted, like the rest of us, with brain and soul and capacity of one sort and onother not essentially different from his own. He rates these people as human beings, and finds many of them distinctly lovable.

"Mr. Milligan gives us his impressions in a book that is remarkable for its vitality, picturesqueness, humor, and literary quality. He saw a lot during his seven African years, and saw it all very clearly, so that he came away with a pretty thorough knowledge of the folk among whom he had lived. He presents this knowledge to us delightfully; nobody has written a more instructive and entertaining book about West Africa than Mr. Milligan's." - New York Times Book Review, September 19, 1908.
