This Our Dark Country: The American Settlers of Liberia

Catherine Reef, Author, Catherine Reef, Illustrator Clarion Books $17 (144p) ISBN 978-0-618-14785-4
Catherine Reef describes the founding of Liberia in 1822 by members of the American Colonization Society, who wished to set up a colony for free blacks and former captives, in This Is Our Dark Country: The American Settlers of Liberia. Period photographs and engravings illustrate the volume. Reef's epilogue looks at modern-day Liberia and adds a sobering note: the country is now war-torn and economically unstable.
