From the cover: An extraordinary adventure became legendary with Henry Stanleys description of his search for David Livingstone, a missionary-explorer in Black Africa during the Victorian Era. Sir Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904) was an uncommon man. Orphaned as a child, he was raised at an English institution, which he fled to go to United States. Here he became a journalist, and in 1870 he was given the chance of a lifetime when the New York Herald assigned him to track down English missionary David Livingstone, lost in the heart of Black Africa. This was a superhuman task that Stanley completed successfully. In these pages, the great explorer recounts the legendary adventure that helped the Western world uncover the secrets of a mysterious land.
