Into Africa: The Epic Adventures of Stanley and Livingstone
I found that 'Into Africa' was an interesting read but found it hard to follow because of the continual change in dates which did not appear to follow on from each other. I realise this is a 'Biography' of two men but found the insertion of other explorers lacking meaning, perhaps maps inserted within the pages so as to help with the journeys taken.
I can certainly encourage those interested in African exploration to go ahead and purchase the book, they shan't be disapointed with the read and the search for knowledge. Did Stanely say "Dr Livingstone I presume?" I'd like to imagine he did but unfortunately there is no such record of such, perhaps this page was absconded by those wishing to alienate others perhaps it is just a later phrase added by Stanley to prove he had indeed found the master.
Alas, we shall never know.
Please read and enjoy and draw your own conclusion.

This is an excellent account leading up to Stanley's search for Livingstone and describes the great difficulties encountered by any explorer in those days.It describes both explorers earlier lives and also back in England and America and the part that The Royal Geographical Society played in the search for the source of the Nile.
A fascinating book especially if you love Africa.

From start to finish this was a real "page turner". Martin Dugards retelling of this classic story brings it to life. a must for any one interested in African exploration during the period and colonial history.

This title was not available in a Dutch bookstore, so I ordered a secondhand copy from Amazon. Lucky me! It arrived promptly and I started devouring it rightaway.

A good story of the African adventure but also a great insight into the social system in Europe and Africa in the 19th century. A very good read indeed.

apologies for my earlier email about into africa being a library book - i did not read the fine print and missed this info:
i would not have bought it even at one cent a copy - yellowed and old and just not a good feel about the book
