Amazingly, he explores Genoa, Venice, and Cairo, sails the Mediterranean and Nile, and treks the wilds of Africa to reach Axum, an ancient city where he hopes to uncover a long-hidden secret.Along the way, he meets notable people like •Infinitus, a clever merchant who inspires and finances the great adventure, •Johnny Humour, Chauncey’s mentor, once a thief, now the merchant’s trusted deputy, •Mbwasao, an expert native guide and prodigal linguist, •Father Fillipo, a once-timid, withdrawn Catholic missionary who embraces life thanks to Mbwasao, •Reverend Kikinkgo, a bitter man, caretaker of the great secret.Chauncey’s adventures culminate in a legend about him, a legend said to save a thousand lives.

Yet, Chauncey Kerboom is not “larger-than-life,” not strong, not athletic. Worse, he is stone deaf. How then, does he become an African legend?
