Africa Explored Zusammenfassung

Africa Explored: Europeans on the Dark Continent, 1769-1889 Christopher Hibbert

Many outstanding men-James Bruce, Richard Francis Burton, David Livingstone, Henry Morton Stanley, and others-won lasting fame from their African journeys. Africa Explored collects 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.

Sprightly, interesting reading. * Library Journal *

Hibbert is a writer of absolute certainty, and it is hard not to believe that he was himself on hand at every occasion he recounts. * The New Yorker *
Fascinating reading... . [Africa Explored] is likely to send the reader back to the explorers' own published accounts to gratify the curiosity Hibbert so entertainingly stimulates. * Los Angeles Times *
Hibbert writes exceptionally well, with a sharp eye for the clash of character and the dramatic moment. * Chicago Tribune *
