A biography of David Livingstone giving a balanced account of his strengths and weaknesses. The first European to cross Africa, he discovered the Victoria Falls and survived shipwreck, attacks by natives and being mauled by a lion.
'...a clear, succinct, and balanced assessment of Livingstone's complex character, achievements and failures and enduring legacy.' - Choice '...this is an admirably concise, carefully considered and well-argued account of Livingstone's achievements and failures in the light both of his time and ours...warmly recommended as the best possible modern introduction to an extraordinary, if not always very sympathetic character.' - John Spurling, Times Literary Supplement
