How I Found Livingstone in Central Africa (Dover Books on Travel, Adventure) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Riveting firsthand account of the long and arduous search by journalist/adventurer for one of the great explorers of the 19th century. A real-life adventure story that tells of incredible hardships — disease, hostile natives, tribal warfare, impenetrable jungles, and other obstacles. Also includes a wealth of information on African peoples. 1 map.

Book News Annotation:

Dover has reprinted the epic story of the expedition undertaken by the journalist Henry Stanley at the expense of the New York Herald that led to the famous line: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume." The tale, which is conveyed in a snappy narrative style, is also a document of the intolerant and patronizing attitudes held by 19th-century Europeans toward other races and toward wilderness.
