by David Livingstone
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2010
This absorbing narrative by the world famous explorer and Christian missionary, David Livingstone, was first published in 1857. Livingstone's book describes in careful detail his travels and work in parts of southern and central Africa previously unknown to Europeans. It distils the experiences and observations of sixteen years during which Livingstone bravely faced the challenges of climate, terrain and tropical disease, travelling in a small group and adopting a non-confrontational approach to the local populations.
