"Here, at last, is a book about the Congo that evokes not anger and pity, but admiration and hope. In the country's remote interior at the heart of the continent, journalist Jennifer Bakody worked alongside local reporters to broadcast the truth. Their station, Radio Okapi Kindu, overcame obstacles -- including soldiers and shortages, funding and food -- to report on events in a post-conflict Congo reeling in the transition: everyone in Kindu, Bakody writes, seemed to be fleeing for the coast, even the Lualaba River's crocodiles. She and her colleagues stay, creating a sort of national archives in the airwaves, found on the radio dial's "frequency of peace." Radio Okapi Kindu is a heartfelt memoir of an Africa that few correspondents or visitors ever get to see."
