To the editor: I have read in the May 1976 issue a review by Dr. William B. Greenough III of Dr. Pascal James Imperato's A wind in Africa. Since I have read this book, I wish to comment on the book and this review.
Having spent many years in Africa as a medical officer, I can appreciate that Dr. Imperato's successfully vaccinating millions of Africans under trying conditions was indeed a signal achievement. This achievement was recognized by the reviewer, but I was dismayed by the unwarranted criticisms of Dr. Imperato's magnificent account of his five years in Mali.
