Africa Explored

Many outstanding men―James Bruce, Richard Francis Burton, David Livingstone, Henry Morton Stanley, and others―won lasting fame from their African journeys. Africa Exploredcollects their amazing tales of treks into the unknown. These tales of Europeans in Africa before the wave of colonialism mix exotic sights and startling customs with sympathetic meetings of Africa’s people and scenes of sublime beauty. Africa Explored relates Mungo Park’s being robbed and left for dead in the West African desert, then saved by repeated acts of kindness; Burton and Speke’s search for the legendary Mountains of the Moon that fed the Nile; Alexander Laing’s fatal voyage to Timbuktu; Livingston’s journeys up the Zambezi River; German missionary Johannes Rebmann’s astonishment at beholding the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro; and other incredible encounters with strange animals, the slave trade, crippling diseases, and desert nomads.
