David Livingstone was a Scottish medical missionary with the London Missionary Society, an explorer in Africa, and one of the most popular British heroes of the late-19th-century in the Victorian era. Henry Stanley was a Welsh-American journalist and explorer who was famous for his exploration of central Africa and his search for Dr. Livingstone. Upon finding Livingstone, Stanley reportedly asked, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" This comprehensive edition of Livingstone's and Stanley's tales gives firsthand insight into their lives. It is one of the most important autobiographical sources published by Livingstone.

“If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.” -- David Livingstone
