Mr. Gaines enjoys traveling and had always wanted to visit his mother's homeland, Ghana, West Africa. While growing up, his mother had often told him stories about this amazing land and his wonderful relatives. Mr. Gaines knew that at some point in his lifetime, this was a trip he would have to make.

He, along with his sister and two other travel companions, spent an amazing twelve days in Ghana filled with excitement and discovery. This book chronicles his experiences along with those of his travel companions.
