This book was the basis of the 1931 jungle adventure film of the same name a film that was once extremely popular and influential but now hard to even find As it turns out the film was uite loosely based on the book which varies so much that it s something of a wonder they kept the nameThe structure of the book is unusual in that each chapter features Horn s own autobiographical writing about his time in late 19th century Africa and then Lewis transcription of his talking to her about the portion of his memoirs he had just written It s hard to even imagine the sort of Africa that Aloysius Horn traveled lived and worked in an Africa at a time when gorillas and elephants were so numerous no one thought anything about shooting them and it only appeals to the alien appeal of the setting Horn s narrative is extremely exciting as are all the adventures he hints at but never gets to write in his talks with LewisThe work is obviously one of his time and the attitudes toward other races and ethnicities are hardly enlightened but I was somewhat impressed with how much Horn seemed to genuinely love and respect African people despite referring to them as savages cannibals and boys throughout and that he reserved his ugliest racism toward the French of whom he never says anything approaching a kind word

Revealing story about late 19th century European activity in Western Euatorial Africa At this time Europeans were not even aware of the existence of gorillas they were called dawnbreakers There was great demand for rubber which was obtained from wild vines not trees ivory and exotic hardwoods which were the main items of commerce Trader Horn sought Slaves were still being actively traded but Trader Horn did not participate in the slave trade Trader Horn had to contend with crocodiles rogue elephants and cannibals as he traded on the Ogowe River His contemporaries some of whom he met were DeBrassa Rhodes du Chaillu Stanley and LivingstoneThe genesis of the novel is poignant in that a man who had experienced all that he had at the end of his life was reduced to peddling homemade wire goods in Johannesburg where he encountered Ethelreda Lewis who transcribed his storieshe went from Joss house to Doss houseI read Trader Horn after seeing the movie on Turner Classic Movies which fascinated me I am now reading Tramp Royal which is a biography of Trader Horn by Tim Couzens and From My African Notebook by Albert Shweitzer who founded his hospital on Trader Horn s old stamping grounds It seems that Trader Horn was a Forrest Gump on steroids having seen everything met everyone and done everything

Reading the reviews of Trader Horn I felt like I had just read a completely different book It may have fooled people when it was first published in 1927 but to read the 2002 edition is an insult to intelligence If he were a trader he would have been aware of but does not mention the near genocide of the Africans in the Congo region for the harvesting of rubber and collection of ivory If anyone is interested in the real story get a copy of King Leopold s Ghost or Conrad s Heart of Darkness which is based on his time on the river boats in the CongoMany of the places he mentions cannot be found on internet for example Samba Falls is mentioned many times the place is either a figment of the imagination or lost to history over the past century Horn claims Edwin Booth the Shakespearean actor the brother of John Wilkes Booth taught him elocution at some boarding school in England if that were the case reading his narrative in the second half of each chapter all was forgottenHorn claims he spoke the native language and hunted with indigenous Africans but his knowledge of wildlife is totally wrong Hippos are harmless bull elephants lead the heard to find water lions are very fussy eaters etc If what he states is true he would have known better He also has an uncanny memory for the names of villages different tribes their chiefs even brothers of the chiefs from 50 years previous Many traders and explores to this region in the mid to late 19th Century got sick many died in Africa and many of those that returned suffered long term health problems This guy never got sick Horn comes across an alcoholic bigot the story is too outrageous to be taken seriously there are just too many holes in the story He spent some time in Africa but the rest is just bunkum Trader Horn should never be promoted as a true story it is just bad fiction
