"'Fresh and vivid...Dugard retells this great story very effectively'" (Sunday Express)
"'Measured and assured. His researches have unearthed considerable material and he has assembled it with care...genuinely gripping, and will appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of exploration'" (Sunday Telegraph)
"'Its great strength lies in taking a story you thought you knew well and telling you so many things of which you had no idea'" (Daily Mail)
"'It is one of the most exciting stories in the annals exploration, has one of the most extraordinary denouements, and gave rise to the wonderfully inept line, "Dr Livingstone, I presume?" Henry Morton Stanley's 1871 mission to rescue the good doctor in deepest Africa has been told dozens of times before...yet the story is good enough to withstand retelling and Martin Dugard obliges with gusto...Dugard's focus is not the search for the source of the Nile, but the characters and events that led to the famous meeting...he weaves a tight and gripping narrative...and his portrait of 19th-century Africa is vivid and convincing - you can feel the mixture of heart-stirring beauty and soul-stirring horror'" (The Sunday Times)
"'One cracking adventure story...will keep you turning the pages well into the night, I promise you'" (Bill Bryson)
The gripping and acclaimed retelling of the legendary story of Livingstone and Stanley.See all Product description

A fascinating book especially if you love Africa.
The author also gives a very good impression of British society in the mid 19th century. For example, I was astonished at what a big event Livingston's funeral was. Putting it in a modern context, it was on a par with the funeral of Princess Diana. I have tried to read similar books in the past, but they have been too dry. However, 'Into Africa' was written in a very engaging way, and I would recommend it to anyone.
