Synopses & Reviews
This volume recounts Henry Stanley's search for David Livingstone, a missionary-explorer lost in Africa during the Victorian era. In 1870, the New York Herald sent journalist Stanley to track down the English missionary. In these pages the great explorer describes the famous adventure that not only led him to Livingstone, but that led to tremendous discoveries in a previously unknown land.
I imagine that these ant-hills were formed during a remarkably wet season, when, possibly, the forest-clad plain was inundated. I have seen the ants at work by thousands, engaged in the work of erecting their hills in other districts suffering from inundation. What a wonderful system of cells these tiny insects construct! A perfect labyrinth--cell within cell, room within room, hall within hall--an exhibition of engineering talents and high architectural capacity--a model city, cunningly contrived for safety and comfort!
