KIRKUS REVIEW

From Zanzibar to Ujiji in Eastern Africa, Stanley's caravan, often moving on will power alone, travelled 975 miles for 236 days toward that famous moment in history when the inexperienced newspaper reporter uttered the memorable words, ""Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"" The journey back ended in tragedy for the weakened Livingstone and in ridicule for Stanley who became the scapegoat of a score of jealous correspondents unable to bear his success. Inspired by Livingstone's career and by the man himself, Stanley decided to continue his work by exploring the innermost regions of the Dark Continent. The author has gathered the details of these various expeditions with care in an unusual travel log of a bygone era.
